The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 25.8 billion Paffniacs are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.
The powerhouse Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 5,582 trillion paffnars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 216,374 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings, saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, and beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnia's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
