The Democratic Caliphate of Paganan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Fatih bin Abdulhamid bin Abdurrahman with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.056 billion Paglan 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isla La Jollie. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pagian economy, worth 94.9 trillion Sagis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 89,851 Sagis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, the state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, and convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paganan's national animal is the Camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Paganan is ranked 17,358th in the world and 503rd in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 85.19 on the Human Development Index.
