Regional Influence: Power


The Matriarchy of PapaBellum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Regent PapaBellum with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.269 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 isn't funded at all. 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 a remarkable 9,609 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 724,185 Blood Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in PapaBellum, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and the doctor has cold hands. 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 509th in the world and 3rd in Papastan for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,342.51 tourists per hour.
