The United Isles of Pai Lei is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Premier Vance Woate with an even hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 9.275 billion Pai Leites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lue Mio. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, anti-government web sites are springing up, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. 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 17th in Balder and 575th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 120 Whatever.
