The Tribal Sultanate of The Pacific Caliphate is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Qidlaq el-Chasai with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.179 billion Pacifisians 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 large, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Heart of Darkness. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pacifistic economy, worth a remarkable 2,216 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 168,157 Hornbills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, The Pacific Caliphate's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, and Chief Qidlaq el-Chasai is considering changing the Pacifistic flag to one with more glitter. 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 225,860th in the world and 6,355th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -34.21 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
