The Republic of Pazair is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.009 billion Pazairies 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seoul. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pazairy economy, worth 490 trillion Won a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,006 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polite commuters on the Seoul Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pazair's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pazair is ranked 135,469th in the world and 4,775th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 49 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
