The Most Serene Republic of Pastia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rick Heli with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 6.407 billion Pastians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pasa. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pastian economy, worth 512 trillion Pasian Lears a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,049 Pasian Lears, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The dartboard at the Pastian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Rick Heli's face, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Pastian language, and dentists routinely perform open heart surgery. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pastia's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pastia is ranked 24,812th in the world and 1st in The conglomeracy legislature for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 176.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
