The Republic of Painisia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dr Mordekai Efterstens with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.336 billion Painisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Granderburg. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Painisian economy, worth 517 trillion grands a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,003 grands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and all the world's a stage for Painisian political theatrics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Painisia's national animal is the Shiba Inu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Painisia is ranked 127,147th in the world and 6,445th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.83 Kickbacks Per Hour.
