The United Socialist States of Pakota is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.109 billion Pakotans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pakota City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Pakotan economy, worth a remarkable 1,050 trillion Koutzamen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 171,928 Koutzamen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pakota's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pakota is ranked 102,208th in the world and 553rd in The Communist Bloc for Highest Drug Use, scoring 47.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
