The Queendom of Pastria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Tamara Vellisia with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.394 billion Pastrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shortcake City. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pastrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,176 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 191,022 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pastria's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pastria is ranked 224,534th in the world and 5th in The Drawception Community Domains for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -19.44 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
