OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Colony of POPULICA is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Contolus Contolatus with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.011 billion POPULICAians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Populicorp. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.1%.

The frighteningly efficient POPULICAian economy, worth 177 trillion POPS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 176,059 POPS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 597,888 per year while the poor average 38,248, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, POPULICAian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and the nation was recently voted as the most stylish in the Rejected Realms. Crime is totally unknown. POPULICA's national animal is the Dogedoge, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Contolustus.

POPULICA is ranked 14,220th in the world and 328th in the Rejected Realms for Smartest Citizens, with 76.14 quips per hour.
