The People's Republic of Poliopane is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Razor with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 13.925 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 3,148 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 226,073 Panes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Poliopane, military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**, nobody thinks that the Godfather was bettered by Part 2, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. 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 541st in the world and 21st in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 98.73 on the Human Development Index.
