The Federation of Politiania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Rafael Caldera with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.568 billion Politianians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caracas. The average income tax rate is 87.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Politianian economy, worth a remarkable 5,263 trillion Bolivars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 455,034 Bolivars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Recapturing giraffes is proving to be a tall order, stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, Politianians believe manners maketh the leader, and fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Politiania's national animal is the Cheetah, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Politiania is ranked 127,221st in the world and 14th in Soviet Democracy for Most Extreme, scoring 16.61 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
