The Islands of The Democratic Republic Of The Pacific is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Alex LeNov with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.781 billion Pacifician's are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cod. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pacifician economy, worth 571 trillion Pacifician Pacificoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,797 Pacifician Pacificoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, Pacifician's incessantly needle their doctors for relief, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Democratic Republic Of The Pacific's national animal is the Pacifician Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Democratic Republic Of The Pacific is ranked 32,158th in the world and 18th in Enowiden for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 4,114.86 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
