The Community of Poriturand is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Shamans of teh Great Traditions with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.521 billion Poriturians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metis. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Poriturian economy, worth 90.6 trillion Silver Tokens a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,574 Silver Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, fire and brimstone sermons are accompanied by napalm and fragmentation bombs, and abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics. Crime is totally unknown. Poriturand's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poriturand is ranked 198,126th in the world and 104th in Thegye for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 16,740.45 Standard Monetary Units.
