Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.052 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 2,529 trillion paffnars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 193,788 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, Aleksandar Vekili's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Paffniacs. 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 891st in the world and 26th in 10000 Islands for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 102.02 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
