The Protectorate of Paffnicard 5 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 3.994 billion Paffniacs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Paffniac economy, worth 513 trillion banks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,459 banks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 411,849 per year while the poor average 30,392, a ratio of 13.6 to 1.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnicard 5's national animal is the card, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is card farming.

Paffnicard 5 is ranked 7,601st in the world and 5th in 10KI Card Farm for Most Patriotic, with 50.71 flags saluted per person per day.
