The Republic of Portsville 20 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.728 billion Portsville 20ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Portsville 20ian economy, worth 287 trillion marks 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 105,529 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', Leader's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, misbehaving squirrels deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others, and brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Portsville 20's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Portsville 20 is ranked 77,399th in the world and 2,462nd in the Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 314.13 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
