The Union of 24221 Paradigm is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Principex with a fair hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.634 billion 24221 Paradigmians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apotheosis. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient 24221 Paradigmian economy, worth 218 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 133,837 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence, rude retail employees are now even ruder homeless panhandlers, skateparks can be found in every city, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 24221 Paradigm's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnoticism.

24221 Paradigm is ranked 103,225th in the world and 72nd in Conifer for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 374.06 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
