The Republic of Pontbridge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Stylesjl with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 24.619 billion Pontbridgers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pontbridge. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pontbridger economy, worth an astonishing 10,390 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 422,039 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, the Pontbridger Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and the digital money revolution has cashed out. Crime is totally unknown. Pontbridge's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pontbridge is ranked 1,877th in the world and 3rd in Pontbridge Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 26,580.14 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
