The Imperium of Parida is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Autarch Scolar Visari with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, triple-decker prams, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.348 billion Paridans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pyrrhus. The average income tax rate is 69.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Paridan economy, worth 719 trillion krats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 165,489 krats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Paridan Liberator", any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, and lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parida's national animal is the alligator, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Parida is ranked 105,973rd in the world and 25th in Altmora for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,181.46 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
