The Kingdom of Paziano is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 205 million Pazians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 35.4%.

The strong Pazianoan economy, worth 10.6 trillion Arrares a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 51,487 Arrares, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, Paziano Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and the nation is in perpetual campaign mode. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paziano's national animal is the Tangerine Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Paziano is ranked 69,194th in the world and 2,466th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,086.96 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
