The Welfarist Wardenate of Pakitsk is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vűlakýs Avēl˘s PÔrkōv with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.336 billion Pakotský are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of V§latsk. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Pakatska economy, worth a remarkable 3,752 trillion danirtsks a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 281,403 danirtsks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pakitsk's national animal is the marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Welfarism.

Pakitsk is ranked 283,866th in the world and 5,560th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 1.33 prayers per hour.
