The Aspheterist Technarchy of Pazano is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Eskam with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.182 billion Pazani 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stedru. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pazani economy, worth 678 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 162,264 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', every workday begins with group therapy, and visions of giant pink cats are a common side effect after Pazani eat their meals. Crime is totally unknown. Pazano's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Frignism.

Pazano is ranked 218,463rd in the world and 1,148th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -550.53 on the Hayek Index.
