The Matriarchy of PapaBellum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Regent PapaBellum with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.249 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, with Education also on the agenda, 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 8,454 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 690,210 Blood Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and the fate of the world literally rests on Queen Regent PapaBellum's fingers. 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 13,188th in the world and 3rd in Papastan for Most Developed, scoring 88.33 on the Human Development Index.
