Pogging Through The Pain

Population1.353 billion

CapitalNew Pogtopia
LeaderOur Glorious Emperor Jacob Snykenhower


The Empire of Pogging Through The Pain is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Our Glorious Emperor Jacob Snykenhower with an iron fist, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, zero percent divorce rate, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.353 billion Pogging Through The Painians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Pogtopia. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pogging Through The Painian economy, worth 221 trillion dollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 163,765 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Glassy-eyed Pogging Through The Painian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around New Pogtopia, 90% of active duty PTTPAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pogging Through The Pain's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pogism.

Pogging Through The Pain is ranked 118,077th in the world and 549th in The Communist Bloc for Most Stationary, with 129.85483355952 days.
