The Commonwealth of The Poll Advertiser is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its burgeoning emu population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 293 million Poll Advertiserians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The thriving Poll Advertiserian economy, worth 18.6 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is 63,475 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 224,683 per year while the poor average 12,947, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Poll Advertiser's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Poll Advertiser is ranked 34,781st in the world and 2nd in The Land of Jokes for Rudest Citizens, with 83.62 Insults Per Minute.
