The Democratic States of Paenoa is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Leader Jones III with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.473 billion Paenoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paenoa City. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Paenoan economy, worth 374 trillion Monsies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,795 Monsies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest in globalism never flags, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, the government pours millions of Monsies into rehabilitation programs annually, and the number of students attending university has reached a record high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Paenoa's national animal is the Manta Ray, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Paenoa is ranked 72,875th in the world and 2,619th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 130.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
