The Matriarchy of PapaBellum is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Regent PapaBellum with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.864 billion Draconixeses are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bella. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient PapaBellumian economy, worth a remarkable 8,045 trillion Blood Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 678,161 Blood Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes, it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and conspiracy nuts claim that the government is trying to bring about an end to civilisation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PapaBellum's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Intrabellum Pact.

PapaBellum is ranked 604th in the world and 3rd in Papastan for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,345.23 Tourists Per Hour.
