The Republic of Python16 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 999 million Python16ians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Python16ian economy, worth 20.9 trillion baht a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 20,947 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incompetent former soldiers have been re-employed as incompetent cleaners and kitchen staff, voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders Leader wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Python16's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Python16 is ranked 59,155th in the world and 223rd in The Free Nations Region for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,031.04 Tourists Per Hour.
