The Democratic Republic of Middle Papillon is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 404 million Middle Papillonians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Middle Papillonian economy, worth 18.2 trillion Kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 45,027 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle Papillon's national animal is the Red Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Middle Papillon is ranked 194,655th in the world and 171st in New Western Empire for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
