The Kingdom of Pavaro is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Rob with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 21.872 billion Pavaroans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pavo City. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pavaroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,836 trillion Pavs a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,966 Pavs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pavaro's national animal is the Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pavaro is ranked 274,811th in the world and 1,425th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -17.08 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
