The Dictatorship of Pazor is a tiny, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 16 million Pazorians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 51.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The developing Pazorian economy, worth 521 billion tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 32,579 tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, computers are used primarily for word processing and solitaire, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pazor's national animal is the dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pazor is ranked 61,661st in the world and 1,296th in the Rejected Realms for Most Income Equality, scoring 38.27 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
