The Armed Republic of Puhja is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 462 million Puhjans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puhja City. The average income tax rate is 15.4%.
The powerhouse Puhjan economy, worth 42.9 trillion Kroons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 92,842 Kroons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, Eckie-Ecola has declared that their soda poop is The Real Thing, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, and former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puhja's national animal is the Eurasian Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
