The Holy Empire of Pogaria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Emmanuel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 38.502 billion Pogarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dominion. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Pogarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,931 trillion kosses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 76,126 kosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The law says that all Pogarians are created equal — no matter how they were created, burning yourself alive is not okay but starving and whipping yourself is fine, the best-of-the-best athletes have been replaced by the best-of-the-mediocre, and the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogaria's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Truthism.

Pogaria is ranked 221,484th in the world and 2nd in The Empire for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -54.13 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
