The Protectorate of Paffnicard 2 is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.15 billion Paffniacs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Paffniac economy, worth 431 trillion banks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 104,013 banks, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity, and Aleksandar Vekili's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnicard 2'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 2 is ranked 30,834th in the world and 12th in 10KI Card Farm for Smartest Citizens, with 47.62 quips per hour.
