The Union of Pamia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Maria Yakosaski with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed population of 5.489 billion Pamians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yakutsk. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pamian economy, worth 961 trillion Tsoulans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 175,081 Tsoulans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

President Maria Yakosaski's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, and President Maria Yakosaski is called 'Patches' at international summits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pamia's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pamia is ranked 20,575th in the world and 11th in CISB for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,043.36 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
