The Federation of Paxilian is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.495 billion Paxilianians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paxilianian economy, worth 612 trillion Pax Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 175,255 Pax Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, most pop videos prominently feature the Paxilianian flag, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paxilian's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Paxilian is ranked 128,437th in the world and 4,896th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 558.51 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
