Paffnia was Commended by Security Council Resolution # 276

The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.996 billion Paffniacs 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The all-consuming Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 5,426 trillion paffnars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 217,112 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, Aleksandar Vekili is strangely popular with male politicians' wives, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, and Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnia's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Paffnia is ranked 9,448th in the world and 520th in 10000 Islands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 10 valid endorsements.
