The Protectorate of Pacifica Founder is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.217 billion Pacifica Founderians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.7%.

The thriving Pacifica Founderian economy, worth 675 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 44,361 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, and life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old". Crime is a serious problem. Pacifica Founder's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Pacifica Founder is ranked 154,729th in the world and 9th in Pacifica for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -1.58 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
