The Matriarchy of Paikauhale is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 758 million Paikauhaleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Paikauhalean economy, worth 32.5 trillion Paikauhalean Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,910 Paikauhalean Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Euthanasia is illegal, the Swan is a protected species, a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections, and police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paikauhale's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Paikauhale is ranked 44,116th in the world and 27th in Thegye for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,649 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
