The Commonwealth of Pacho is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Poobah with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.571 billion Pachoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pacho City. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pachoan economy, worth 396 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 111,027 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, and misbehaving Marmots deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others. Crime is totally unknown. Pacho's national animal is the Marmot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pacho is ranked 41,216th in the world and 2,333rd in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,498.78 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
