The Protectorate of Paffnicard 9 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, parental licensing program, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.154 billion Paffniacs are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Paffniac economy, worth 544 trillion banks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,986 banks, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new one bank coin also makes a handy throwing-star, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, and the urinary fragrance of seedier establishments is thankfully hidden by the smell of stale smoke. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnicard 9's national animal is the card, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is card farming.

Paffnicard 9 is ranked 16,187th in the world and 6th in 10KI Card Farm for Healthiest Citizens, with 11.58 bananas ingested per day.
