The Democratic States of Paenoa is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Leader Jones III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.835 billion Paenoans 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paenoa City. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Paenoan economy, worth 411 trillion Monsies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,413 Monsies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest in globalism never flags, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, the government pours millions of Monsies into rehabilitation programs annually, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Paenoa's national animal is the Manta Ray, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Paenoa is ranked 64,325th in the world and 2,617th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,018.88 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
