The Rogue Nation of Pain-land is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, lack of airports, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, devout population of 314 million Sufferings are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Pain-landian economy, worth 11.9 trillion Bloods a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 38,048 Bloods, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is rumoured that Leader uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions, Pain-land has designated Hell as its capital city, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and Pain-landian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pain-land's national animal is the Cornelius, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pain-land is ranked 79,342nd in the world and 17th in Entropy for Lowest Crime Rates, with 65.41 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
