The United States of Roast Porg is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Eric Sayre with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.517 billion Roasted Porgs live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cove Grity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The powerhouse Roast Porgian economy, worth 192 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 126,703 bitcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 766,406 per year while the poor average 9,371, a ratio of 81.8 to 1.

Books are so highly regarded in Roast Porg that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, and woodcutter axes are cited as the most common cause of death amongst Cho'nks. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Roast Porg's national animal is the Cho'nk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Roast Porg is ranked 47,868th in the world and 3rd in Illegal Teavania for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 92.59 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
