The Protectorate of Paffnicard 8 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 4.19 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. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paffniac economy, worth 547 trillion banks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,778 banks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The traditional Violetist dish of stuffed sheep's head is served with an intense look of shock upon its face, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, citizens insist that there's no law against standing downwind when marijuana crops are burned off, and owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnicard 8's national animal is the card, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is card farming.

Paffnicard 8 is ranked 16,850th in the world and 9th in 10KI Card Farm for Healthiest Citizens, with 11.33 bananas ingested per day.
