The Blessed Grand Duchy of Pollica is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Grand Duke Lodewick III Sthelschwaerdt with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, devout population of 1.341 billion Pollicans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nasserat. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pollican economy, worth 131 trillion Argens a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,189 Argens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, and selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pollica's national animal is the Wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Roman Catholic Church.

Pollica is ranked 102,930th in the world and 630th in Europe for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,561.38 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
