The Federation of Padool is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Scoobs with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.525 billion Padoolians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Padoolian economy, worth 91.5 trillion dalors 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 60,027 dalors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Riots have broken out as a water shortage threatens Padool's stability, refugees from other nations are flocking to Padool's border, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Padool's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Padool is ranked 80,435th in the world and 156th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,885.49 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
