The Protectorate of Paffnia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.252 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and loans are available for students from poor families. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the paffnar.

Paffnia is ranked 2nd in Jedi vs Sith and 1,542nd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 22 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
