The Kingdom of PaginMin is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Min with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.758 billion Kyratis are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyrat. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.1%.

The frighteningly efficient PaginMinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,251 trillion Kyrati Royals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 290,256 Kyrati Royals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,515,308 per year while the poor average 5,391, a ratio of 466 to 1.

Major polluting industries have painted a lot of their machines green to give an impression of caring about the environment, top-shelf magazines feature risqué centrefold spreads of ladies' wrists, retirement apartments house giggling grannies who delightedly watch blank TVs all day long, and farm turkeys are given high doses of antidepressants to take their minds off the holiday season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PaginMin's national animal is the Honey Badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Church of Min.

PaginMin is ranked 2,829th in the world and 116th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,577.34 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
