The Kingdom of PaginMin is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Min with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.326 billion Kyratis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyrat. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The frighteningly efficient PaginMinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,107 trillion Kyrati Royals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 207,860 Kyrati Royals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 721,757 per year while the poor average 43,663, a ratio of 16.5 to 1.

Citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PaginMin's national animal is the Honey Badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Church of Min.

PaginMin is ranked 75,320th in the world and 3,386th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.96 Obesity Rate.
