The Protectorate of Parhe is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maripgan Go-Han Seokhwan with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.746 billion Parhics live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hwangseong. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Parhean economy, worth a remarkable 7,528 trillion Parhean Tongboes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 449,545 Parhean Tongboes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,491,303 per year while the poor average 101,141, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". Crime is totally unknown. Parhe's national animal is the Parhean Rhinoceros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinkyo.

Parhe is ranked 22,187th in the world and 7th in Aeia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 14.74 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
