The Matzayeh-Empire of Paxiosolange is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Matzayeh with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.666 billion Paxiosolangiers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Halton. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paxiosolanne economy, worth 500 trillion Paxes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,563 Paxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, and maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paxiosolange's national animal is the Great Ivory Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Auld Faith.

Paxiosolange is ranked 35,922nd in the world and 1,683rd in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 213,460.08 Standard Monetary Units.
