The Kingdom of Pavlikstan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by First Consul Pavlik with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.713 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 Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pavlikstanian economy, worth 372 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 137,196 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime is well under control. Pavlikstan's national animal is the beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Pavlikstan is ranked 44,660th in the world and 2,455th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,626.12 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
