The Armed Republic of Pablabibi is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jorj Pablio with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.453 billion Pabli are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Pablo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Pablian economy, worth 274 trillion PablÚs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 188,712 PablÚs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 623,963 per year while the poor average 42,666, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

Mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Jorj Pablio's eyes only', female smokers cut their hair and don suits to get into male-only clubs, and basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pablabibi's national animal is the Yak, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pablabibi is ranked 17,966th in the world and 3rd in Coalition of Authoritarian Nations for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 261.75 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
