The People's Republic of Poliopane is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Razor with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 12.095 billion Poliopaneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Razorgrad. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Poliopanean economy, worth a remarkable 2,710 trillion Panes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 224,104 Panes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Increasing numbers of children in Poliopane have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, and voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poliopane's national animal is the Azkal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Great Azkal.

Poliopane is ranked 107,136th in the world and 4,047th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Drug Use, scoring 43.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
