The Dictatorship of Patho is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 529 million Pathoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echuca. The average income tax rate is 44.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pathoan economy, worth 62.8 trillion Sils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,755 Sils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, in pet stores nationwide Pumas are growing in popularity, and the nation's latest batch of politicians include internet comedians, an alleged serial killer, and a highly trained Puma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Patho's national animal is the Puma, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Patho is ranked 69,603rd in the world and 41st in Geopolity for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 44.7 Effective Tax Rate.
