The People's Republic of PASTIR is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emerys Merlin with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, devout population of 4.053 billion Wals 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emerys city. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient PASTIRian economy, worth 566 trillion Wals a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,861 Wals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PASTIR's national animal is the Liger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PASTIR is ranked 19,649th in the world and 564th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,203.01 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
