The Shahdom of Iran of Paseo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sandan Shah Diba with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.077 billion Iranians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tehran. The average income tax rate is 4.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iranian economy, worth a remarkable 2,698 trillion Persian Pekis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 223,410 Persian Pekis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'Leoparddogs' dominate wildlife preserves, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, and lending money has become a major liability. Crime is totally unknown. Paseo's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Paseo is ranked 109,050th in the world and 158th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45 on the Rand Index.
