The Kingdom of PaginMin is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Min with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.862 billion Kyratis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 11.6%.

The frighteningly efficient PaginMinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,355 trillion Kyrati Royals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 231,184 Kyrati Royals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 821,216 per year while the poor average 46,901, a ratio of 17.5 to 1.

Commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and Kyrat has become the number one destination for urban exploration in the South Pacific. 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 26,447th in the world and 772nd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 69.43 on the Human Development Index.
