The Protectorate of Paffnia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.055 billion Paffniacs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.
The powerhouse Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 1,437 trillion paffnars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,736 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. 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.
Paffnia is ranked 113,675th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
