The Dominion of Parxland is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 380 million Parxians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Parxian economy, worth 37.7 trillion Evroes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 99,275 Evroes, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

The study of medicine is popular throughout Parxland, aides are afraid to ask if Leader wants a cup of tea or coffee, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and the nation's biggest export is stupidity. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Parxland's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Parxland is ranked 170,201st in the world and 26th in Da Couch Gang for Lowest Crime Rates, with 54.91 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
