The Kingdom of Pavlikstan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by First Consul Pavlik with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.209 billion Pavlikstanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funland. The average income tax rate is 51.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pavlikstanian economy, worth 857 trillion dollars a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 164,705 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

A government program is underway to revitalize Pavlikstan's beaches, the military has had its funding stripped back as the nation seeks a smaller role in international politics, the Pavlikstan Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime is totally unknown. Pavlikstan's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Pavlikstan is ranked 24,428th in the world and 1,183rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 77.96 on the Human Development Index.
