The People's Republic of Parasang is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Presidential Committee with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.533 billion Parasangians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winside City. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Parasangian economy, worth 300 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,554 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, the comic book series 'Presidential Committee and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parasang's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Parasang is ranked 228,951st in the world and 6,943rd in the West Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -10 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
