OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The United Isles of Pai Lei is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Vance Woate with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 9.782 billion Pai Leites 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, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lue Mio. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the government is avowedly atheist, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and euthanasia is legal. Crime is totally unknown. Pai Lei's national animal is the lobster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Tai.

Pai Lei is ranked 90th in Balder and 2,341st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 313 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
