The Caliphate of Packilvania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Noi with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, rampant corporate plagiarism, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 36.951 billion Packilvanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hikaruton. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Packilvanian economy, worth an astonishing 11,080 trillion Packels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 299,863 Packels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Packilvania's national animal is the Arkane, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Packilvania is ranked 1,231st in the world and 34th in The East Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 215.7 quips per hour.
