The Protectorate of Paffnicard 1 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ritual sacrifices, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.151 billion Paffniacs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The average income tax rate is 53.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Paffniac economy, worth 484 trillion banks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,809 banks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and the government snoops on private internet connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnicard 1's national animal is the card, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is card farming.

Paffnicard 1 is ranked 40,557th in the world and 19th in 10KI Card Farm for Smartest Citizens, with 41.39 quips per hour.
