The Too-Well-Hidden Bunker of Podium is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Michael Talberg with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.458 billion Poduminians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eighburn. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Poduminian economy, worth a remarkable 1,540 trillion points a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 206,618 points, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Michael Talberg is a silly poophead. Crime is totally unknown. Podium's national animal is the Sergal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
