The Sovereignty of Parxland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Keiron Parx with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.205 billion Parxians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Parxian economy, worth 281 trillion Evroes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 127,597 Evroes, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Scaffolding is built around scaffolding to give safe access, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, sleeping on the job is recommended, and daring to agree with another politician is grounds for instant dismissal. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Parxland's national animal is the Jaeger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Parxian.

Parxland is ranked 82,774th in the world and 344th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,022.2 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
