The Republic of Parcria is a small, genial nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 26 million Parcrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 22.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The weak Parcrian economy, worth 767 billion Parcrian 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. 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 29,510 Parcrian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, Parcrian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Parcria's national animal is the Bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Parcria is ranked 20,238th in the world and 59th in Refugia for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 76.95 Workforce Participation Rate.
