The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.496 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 3,032 trillion paffnars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,721 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", the family of Aleksandar Vekili bite their thumbs at paparazzi intrusions, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Paffniac lands, and foreign powers often deal with problems that Paffnia can't handle. 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.
