The Republic of The Pontic State is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Dionysios Costadin with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.512 billion Pontians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trebizond. The average income tax rate is 40.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pontic economy, worth 233 trillion Miliarensias a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,509 Miliarensias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, and a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Pontic politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pontic State's national animal is the Booted Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

The Pontic State is ranked 73,534th in the world and 302nd in Europe for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 3,381.37 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
