The Protectorate of Pascala is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Governor-General Hyatt Ramos with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.594 billion Pascalans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 4.5%.

The all-consuming Pascalan economy, worth 762 trillion Dirhams a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 115,581 Dirhams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pascala's national animal is the Lizard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Maguzawa.

Pascala is ranked 33,215th in the world and 20th in CISB for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,393.45 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
