The Free Republic of Ponderosa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Walker with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 20.081 billion Ponderosans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Fe. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ponderosan economy, worth a remarkable 6,836 trillion Ponderosa dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 340,425 Ponderosa dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,344,949 per year while the poor average 58,337, a ratio of 23.1 to 1.

Ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, the most popular household pet in Ponderosa is the domestic minor, and CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ponderosa's national animal is the Osprey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ponderosa is ranked 9,518th in the world and 26th in Wintreath for Smartest Citizens, with 95.38 quips per hour.
