The Protectorate of Paffnicard 10 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The devout population of 4.144 billion Paffniacs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paffniac economy, worth 489 trillion banks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,197 banks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Government popup ads are springing up like weeds, the government is flooded with compensation requests, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and Card farming now admits men and women into its clergy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnicard 10's national animal is the card, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is card farming.

Paffnicard 10 is ranked 29,105th in the world and 8th in 10KI Card Farm for Smartest Citizens, with 49.33 quips per hour.
