The United Isles of Pai Lei is a huge, economically powerful nation, ruled by Premier Vance Woate with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 999 million, all of whom are zombies, 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.

Prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, and the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Pai Lei's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance. 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 3,323rd in Balder and 112,630th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -18 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Pai Lei is currently researching a cure.
