The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.895 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, outspoken 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 2,637 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 189,828 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and only criminals carry guns. 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.
