The Republic of Parens Patriae is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, frequent executions, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.504 billion Parens Patriaeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Parens Patriaean economy, worth 647 trillion currencies 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 an amazing 258,407 currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, Leader can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, soldiers have a preference for fire-and-forget payloads, and babysitters are a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parens Patriae's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Parens Patriae is ranked 2,906th in the world and 73rd in the South Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 12,136.32 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
