The Matriarchy of PapaBellum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Regent PapaBellum with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.259 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. 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 9,601 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 724,185 Blood Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending recently hit a new high, fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. 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 5,154th in the world and 1st in Papastan for Most Authoritarian, with 7,548.81 milliStalins.
