Portsville

The Republic of Portsville is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, disturbing lack of elderly people, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 4.997 billion Portsvilleans 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Portsvillean economy, worth 715 trillion deniers 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 143,137 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, and more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portsville's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Portsville is ranked 75,567th in the world and 28th in Testregionia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 156,555 Standard Monetary Units.
