The Protectorate of Paffnicard 5 is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, devout population of 4.173 billion Paffniacs are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Paffniac economy, worth 533 trillion banks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,884 banks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 409,353 per year while the poor average 30,327, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.

The government regrets to say that it is forced to make cuts to citizens, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, when their backs are against the walls Paffniacs look out for gay men, and cities in Paffnicard 5 declare independence based on interpretation of the historic meaning of cave paintings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnicard 5's national animal is the card, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is card farming.

Paffnicard 5 is ranked 14,422nd in the world and 4th in 10KI Card Farm for Healthiest Citizens, with 12.31 bananas ingested per day.
