The Kingdom of Parthonopia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Carlo I with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 7.686 billion Parthonopians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ancona. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Parthonopian economy, worth 362 trillion Denaris a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,152 Denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, atheists are heavily taxed, and the nation is under martial law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Parthonopia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Verroism.

Parthonopia is ranked 183,957th in the world and 26th in Greater Olympus for Most Politically Free, scoring 12.83 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
