The Black Solitary Incarcerate of Pacolind is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by BATMAN with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.425 billion Pacolindians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of shoopdawhoop stronghold. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.
The strong Pacolindian economy, worth 610 trillion shamwows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 137,861 shamwows, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.
Mandatory daycare is provided by the government, all marriages are arranged by the government, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and the right to free speech is being drastically curtailed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pacolind's national animal is the potato, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Great HIM.
