The Dictatorship of Papalandia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Father with an iron fist, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, triple-decker prams, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.541 billion Papalandians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Papagrad. The average income tax rate is 90.8%.

The very strong Papalandian economy, worth 742 trillion Papas 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 a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. 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 an impressive 113,455 Papas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Father's portrait, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Papalandia's national animal is the Millipede, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fatherism.

Papalandia is ranked 18,453rd in the world and 364th in the Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 1,526 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
