The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.081 billion Paffniacs enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 thriving Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 4,183 trillion paffnars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 198,466 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some paycheques only arrive every 12 to 24 weeks, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, it is common to see Maxémon Trainer listed on Paffniac resumés, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. 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 cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Paffnia is ranked 195,240th in the world and 7th in Vapor III for Most Pro-Market, scoring -90.44 on the Rand Index.
