|Leader||Dr Mordekai Efterstens|
The Republic of Painisia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dr Mordekai Efterstens with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.598 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Granderburg. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Painisian economy, worth 382 trillion grands a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,115 grands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
The best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, the government loves seeing the little people fight, bike rage is all the rage, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. 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.
