The People's Republic of Poteramnsan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by A Random Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its fear of technology, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.926 billion Poterams are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poterahacsin. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Poteramnsanian economy, worth 190 trillion monies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 98,938 monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Poteramnsan, other people's happiness is the biggest cause of Poteramnsanian unhappiness, and underground copulation clubs have sprung up in major cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poteramnsan's national animal is the Mastiff, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Enforced Atheism.

Poteramnsan is ranked 209,304th in the world and 260th in Sonindia for Most Influential, scoring 11 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
