The Islamic Democratic Caliphate of Paganan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Khalifah Al-Mushthafa Li Dinillah with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.221 billion Paglans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isla La Jollie. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paglan economy, worth 315 trillion Sagis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,984 Sagis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, unruly children often visit adult websites when angry with their parents, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paganan's national animal is the Camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Paganan is ranked 245,473rd in the world and 11,335th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.33 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
