The Kingdom of Ponticianre is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Antonio I with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 2.76 billion Ponticians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citad Versadyena. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pontic economy, worth 324 trillion Pojiers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,525 Pojiers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation solves other countries' human rights problems with a generous dose of violence, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, it's always rabbit season, and new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ponticianre's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Arovikanism.

Ponticianre is ranked 170,397th in the world and 109th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.47 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
