The Protectorate of Paffnia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Aleksandar Vekili with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 22.779 billion Paffniacs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoptopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The powerhouse Paffniac economy, worth a remarkable 4,662 trillion paffnars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 204,684 paffnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is compulsory, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paffnia's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Paffnia is ranked 5,489th in the world and 4th in The Global Union Consortium for Largest Populations, with 22.8 billion Capita.
