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, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.681 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, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Granderburg. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Painisian economy, worth 586 trillion grands a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,298 grands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, and Dr Mordekai Efterstens is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. 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 147,195th in the world and 7,157th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 43.54 Workforce Participation Rate.
