The Grand Cobaltian Bureaucrat of Pacificora is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Zar Koranal with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.863 billion Pacificans 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pala. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pacifican economy, worth 529 trillion Koras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,994 Koras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Pacifican Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, in a baffling press conference Chancellor Zar Koranal proudly dismantled a broken door, and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. Crime is totally unknown. Pacificora's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pacificora is ranked 26,796th in the world and 32nd in Cobalt Network for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.89 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
