The Islamic Democratic Caliphate of Paganan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Khalifah Al-Mushthafa Li Dinillah with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.528 billion Paglans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isla La Jollie. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paglan economy, worth 346 trillion Sagis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,172 Sagis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unruly children often visit adult websites when angry with their parents, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, and man-love is banned in the name of His love. 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 209,719th in the world and 7,807th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,953.87 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
