The Autonomous Communities of Page is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Speakers' Council with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.909 billion Pagians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Transcendence. The average income tax rate is 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pagean economy, worth a remarkable 1,988 trillion land credits a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 200,664 land credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, and motorway service stations often have a higher population than the hinterland villages that the roads lead to. Crime is almost non-existent. Page's national animal is the sea lion, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Page is ranked 25,609th in the world and 1,394th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,678.31 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
