The Free National Republic of Pahlavishan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Father Pahlav with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, compulsory gun ownership, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.12 billion Pashlavians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pashlavia. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pahlavishanian economy, worth 954 trillion Pashlavian Silver Vesturovs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 186,396 Pashlavian Silver Vesturovs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

90% of active duty PAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, all Pashlavians live like kings, and it is firmly believed that cameras steal souls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pahlavishan's national animal is the Redfurred Sabertooth Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Sponsored Patriotism.

Pahlavishan is ranked 1,465th in the world and 1st in Hive for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 76,045.3 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
