The Free Land of Pasta and Pizza is a large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 87 million Pasta and Pizzans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Pasta and Pizzan economy, worth 2.10 trillion Pastas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Average income is 24,155 Pastas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pasta and Pizza's national animal is the Baker's Wheat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pasta and Pizza is ranked 142,204th in the world and 5,701st in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 16.67 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
