The Marsupial Den of Packilvania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Noi with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 30.905 billion Packilvanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hikaruton. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Packilvanian economy, worth a remarkable 9,461 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 broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 306,155 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 149,820th in the world and 5,494th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -851.3 on the Hayek Index.
