The Republic of Painisia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dr Mordekai Efterstens with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.665 billion Painisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Granderburg. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Painisian economy, worth 198 trillion grands a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,445 grands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Shiba Inus are considered a delicacy, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, and the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Painisia is ranked 12,389th in the world and 788th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 8,037.51 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
