The Empire of Pateto is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 273 million Patetoans 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Patetoan economy, worth 6.42 trillion rhinewags a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 23,522 rhinewags, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A plague of zealots has been unleashed on the streets of Pateto City, prison visits increase substantially during election years, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, and a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pateto's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pateto is ranked 102,791st in the world and 4th in The Moderate Alliance for Best Weather, with 103 Meters Of Sunlight.
