The Nomadic Peoples of Painkillers is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 257 million Painkillersians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The strong Painkillersian economy, worth 11.5 trillion rubles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 44,855 rubles, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 289,098 per year while the poor average 2,811, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Painkillers's national animal is the dolphin, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Painkillers is ranked 13,977th in the world and 44th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Crime Rates, with 20.69 Crimes Per Hour.
