The Kingdom of Pavlikstan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by First Consul Pavlik with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.623 billion Pavlikstanians 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 Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pavlikstanian economy, worth 556 trillion dollars a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 153,634 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Increasing numbers of children in Pavlikstan have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences", and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime is totally unknown. Pavlikstan's national animal is the beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Pavlikstan is ranked 2,564th in the world and 129th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 203 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
