Regional Influence: Squire

Location: The North Pacific



Population1.682 billion



The Republic of Pazair is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.682 billion Pazairies 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix. The average income tax rate is 67.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Pazairy economy, worth 209 trillion Jeans a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,848 Jeans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

In government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, sex changes are routinely performed at Pazair's hospitals, tourists visit Pazair to mass-moon Pazairy politicians, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pazair's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Pazair is ranked 107,105th in the world and 5,342nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,408.42 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
