The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 21.122 billion Paffniacs enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 powerhouse Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 4,259 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 201,646 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and Aleksandar Vekili panders to nontraditional families. 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 cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Paffnia is ranked 206,530th in the world and 1,641st in 10000 Islands for Fattest Citizens, with 1.12 Obesity Rate.
