The Military Junta of Puvonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by John with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.279 billion Puvonians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puvonia City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Puvonian economy, worth 130 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,990 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 381,181 per year while the poor average 19,112, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, school uniforms are compulsory, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Puvonian Liberator", and the latest guided missile cruiser "Ship-1642" has received precisely zero column inches in the press. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puvonia's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult of John.

Puvonia is ranked 17,908th in the world and 955th in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 84.81 on the Human Development Index.
