The United Isles of Pai Lei is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Vance Woate with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.194 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.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lue Mio. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pai Leian economy, worth a remarkable 1,814 trillion Tais a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,020 Tais, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Pai Lei's national animal is the lobster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pai Lei is ranked 3,396th in Balder and 111,181st in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
