The Chivalric Empire of New Paynedom is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Savarius V with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.365 billion Paynedomese 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.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paynedomonium. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Paynedomian economy, worth 939 trillion Shemps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 112,369 Shemps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Paynedomese, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime is totally unknown. New Paynedom's national animal is the Blue Lobster, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Liamology.

New Paynedom is ranked 108,664th in the world and 191st in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Devout, with 13.18 Prayers Per Hour.
