The Protectorate of Parhe is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maripgan Go-Han Seokhwan with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.201 billion Parhics 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 relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hwangseong. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Parhean economy, worth a remarkable 9,035 trillion Parhean Tongboes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 496,415 Parhean Tongboes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,012,737 per year while the poor average 81,501, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown. Parhe's national animal is the Parhean Rhinoceros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinkyo.

Parhe is ranked 43,048th in the world and 781st in Yuno for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,171.65 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
