The Tribal Sultanate of The Pacific Caliphate is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chief Qidlaq el-Chasai with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.693 billion Pacifisians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Heart of Darkness. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pacifistic economy, worth a remarkable 2,158 trillion Hornbills a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,088 Hornbills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government thinks Pacifisians can achieve social cohesion by drinking soda together, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime is totally unknown. The Pacific Caliphate's national animal is the Buttered Breadfly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is pantheistic monism.

The Pacific Caliphate is ranked 1,579th in the world and 38th in the Rejected Realms for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.6 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
