The Egyptian Kingdom of Paglaum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lucien Najjar with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.257 billion Paglaumians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wilwatikta. The average income tax rate is 29.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paglaumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,148 trillion Paglaumian Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,294 Paglaumian Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Prime Minister Lucien Najjar's bedroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paglaum's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Paglaum is ranked 38,794th in the world and 13th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Rudest Citizens, with 77.02 Insults Per Minute.
