The Social Democracy of Pacisilea is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hal with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 12.949 billion Pacisileans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Internationalen. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Pacisilean economy, worth a remarkable 1,811 trillion Antarsyas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 139,862 Antarsyas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Pacisilean Embarrassments, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pacisilea's national animal is the Spider, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pacisilea is ranked 6,393rd in the world and 310th in Balder for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,480.16 tourists per hour.
