The Republic of Pakinowstan is a massive, devout nation, renowned for its burgeoning Beaver population. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.059 billion Pakinowstanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Religion & Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Cheese Exports and Tourism.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is well under control. Pakinowstan's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Madle.

Pakinowstan is ranked 1,706th in the Rejected Realms and 81,812th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 43 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
