The United Isles of Pai Lei is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Vance Woate with a fair hand, and renowned for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 9.613 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.

Most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest lobster hunting institutions, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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 54th in Balder and 3,464th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 83 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
