The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.517 billion Paffniacs enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The very strong Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 3,477 trillion paffnars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,184 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnia's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Paffnia is ranked 167,879th in the world and 6th in New Khanate of Sudiky for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.34 Kickbacks Per Hour.
