The People's Republic of The Pool-io Nation is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Paul Nave with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 1.768 billion Pool-io Nationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Oro. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pool-io Nationian economy, worth 206 trillion Puls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 116,588 Puls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A PhD just ain't what it used to be, being Paul Nave has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pool-io Nation's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Pool-io Nation is ranked 9,787th in the world and 317th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,911.49 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
