The Matriarchy of PapaBellum is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Regent PapaBellum with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.511 billion Draconixeses are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bella. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient PapaBellumian economy, worth an astonishing 11,081 trillion Blood Pounds 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 a breathtaking 763,693 Blood Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Getting an autograph has become harder than ever, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the PapaBellumian military unleashed its biological weapons, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PapaBellum's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Intrabellum Pact.

PapaBellum is ranked 19,634th in the world and 3rd in Papastan for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
