|Leader||The Shamans of teh Great Traditions|
The Community of Poriturand is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Shamans of teh Great Traditions with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ban on automobiles, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.268 billion Poriturians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metis. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Porituran economy, worth 300 trillion Silver Tokens a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,363 Silver Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, birth announcements often also serve as death announcements, and older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Poriturand's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
