The Fiefdom of Padurea Sinistra is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 375 million Sinistrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sinistran economy, worth 15.3 trillion Dark Ducats 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 large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, Soda Sales, and Gambling. 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 40,710 Dark Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Padurea Sinistra City, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Padurea Sinistra City to enjoy their national art, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Padurea Sinistra's national animal is the werewolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Padurea Sinistra is ranked 107,994th in the world and 5,017th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 41.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
