The Republic of Painisia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dr Mordekai Efterstens with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.342 billion Painisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Granderburg. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Painisian economy, worth 146 trillion grands a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,359 grands, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A third of Painisians are e-certified CEOs, bins outnumber trees in city parks, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Painisia's national animal is the Shiba Inu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Painisia is ranked 76,848th in the world and 4,106th in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 3,499.55 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
