The Welfarist Vizierdom of Pakitsk is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Vűlakýs Avēl˘s PÔrkōv with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.395 billion Pakotský love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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

The frighteningly efficient Pakatska economy, worth a remarkable 1,227 trillion danirtsks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 191,883 danirtsks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped politicians frequently host bake sales to fund their campaigns, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, V§latsk Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pakitsk's national animal is the marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Welfarism.

Pakitsk is ranked 190th in the world and 3rd in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 8,335.55 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
