The Glorious Emirate of Papika is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Hipo with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.273 billion Papikans 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tapirópolis. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The all-consuming Papikan economy, worth 176 trillion Cruzeiroes 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 mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 138,591 Cruzeiroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Papikans, it's best not to ask what goes into Tapirópolis Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, and the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Papika's national animal is the Tapir, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Papika is ranked 161,702nd in the world and 8,519th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 9.93 Atheism Rate.
