The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.259 billion Paffniacs are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.
The strong Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 3,112 trillion paffnars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,489 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Organ donation is compulsory, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, and tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnia's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
