The Merchant Guilds of Patho-Espana is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by High Queen Maria Virginia Kahlo with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, devout population of 8.096 billion Patho-Espanans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mordred. The average income tax rate is 40.5%.

The very strong Patho-Espanan economy, worth 664 trillion Pathopesoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 82,060 Pathopesoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up, and all weapon research has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patho-Espana's national animal is the Tigerstriped Antelope, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Patho-Espana is ranked 47,312th in the world and 5th in Axixican Trade Federation Region 4 for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
