The Tribal Sultanate of The Pacific Caliphate is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chief Qidlaq el-Chasai with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.085 billion Pacifisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Heart of Darkness. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pacifistic economy, worth a remarkable 1,824 trillion Hornbills a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,615 Hornbills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's reinforced coffee tables are constructed to survive an atomic blast, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime is totally unknown. The Pacific Caliphate's national animal is the Buttered Breadfly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is pantheistic monism.

The Pacific Caliphate is ranked 2,448th in the world and 60th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 96.15 on the Human Development Index.
