The Commonwealth of Pacho is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Grand Poobah with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-working, democratic population of 6.474 billion Pachoans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pacho City. The average income tax rate is 66.1%.

The all-consuming Pachoan economy, worth 717 trillion Pesos a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 110,870 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, farting etiquette is taught in schools, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, and boom-and-bust cycles are being peddled as economically inevitable. Crime is totally unknown. Pacho's national animal is the Marmot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pacho is ranked 119,449th in the world and 5,983rd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -2.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
