The Nth Degree of Pataphysics is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.869 billion Drivers of Taxis 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 government prioritizes Welfare, although Spirituality, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Taxi Driver economy, worth 187 trillion Swiss Artic Rolls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is 17,263 Swiss Artic Rolls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, vegetarianism is compulsory, Pataphysics's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pataphysics's national animal is the Werebiscuit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pataphysics is ranked 128,446th in the world and 2nd in Regional Defense Committee for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.8 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
