The Republic of Parcia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Carlo with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The humorless population of 16.325 billion Parcians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Parcian economy, worth a remarkable 1,579 trillion Parcian Credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,736 Parcian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, corrupt paupers spend taxpayer Parcian Credits on liquor and tobacco, and teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parcia's national animal is the Carpathian Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Parcia is ranked 202,450th in the world and 6th in Aeterna Publicae for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -1.41 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
