The Most Serene Republic of Pastia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Taru with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 3.636 billion Pastians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pasa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, birth rates have hit an all-time low, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pastia's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Pasian Lear.

Pastia is ranked 18th in New Okatama and 105,124th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -31 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
