The Reichsstaat of Pordana is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Michael Watkins with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.907 billion Pordians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Manchester. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.5%.

The thriving Pordanan economy, worth 165 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 87,033 Euros, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

A popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pordana's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nazism.

Pordana is ranked 41,553rd in the world and 21st in Union of Free European Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 88 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
