The Protectorate of Paffnicard 7 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, ritual sacrifices, and zero percent divorce rate. The humorless, devout population of 4.11 billion Paffniacs are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded 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 34.9%.

The all-consuming Paffniac economy, worth 526 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. 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 128,018 banks, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Imitation is the sincerest form of felony, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and executions often take hours as amateurs attempt to find veins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnicard 7's national animal is the card, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is card farming.

Paffnicard 7 is ranked 17,616th in the world and 10th in 10KI Card Farm for Healthiest Citizens, with 11.08 bananas ingested per day.
