The Republic of Portugal dos Pequeninos is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 351 million Portuguezinhos are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 27.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Little Portuguese economy, worth 15.6 trillion escudos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,351 escudos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, and baseball caps are the new fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portugal dos Pequeninos's national animal is the javali selvagem, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Portugal dos Pequeninos is ranked 221,349th in the world and 6,814th in the Rejected Realms for Most Secular, with 11.6 Atheism Rate.

Most Devout: 23,032nd
