The Republic of Pakinowstan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 7.104 billion Pakinowstanians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 58.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Pakinowstanian economy, worth 266 trillion Madles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,466 Madles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and DDT is used widely to repel disease-carrying insects. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pakinowstan's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pakinowstan is ranked 129,307th in the world and 164th in Schleift Bjorn for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -2.99 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
