The Empire of Pacyfik is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 367 million Pacyfikians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyoto. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.9%.

The strong Pacyfikian economy, worth 28.8 trillion Rulars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,512 Rulars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 275,179 per year while the poor average 16,259, a ratio of 16.9 to 1.

Pacyfikian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and a typical peasant's life cycle leads from birth to the gallows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pacyfik's national animal is the Whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Pacyfik is ranked 39,714th in the world and 21st in Soviet Democracy for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,563.42 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
