The Socialist Federal Republic of Paramara is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Heliodoro Pessoa with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 3.472 billion Paramarans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osresa. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paramaran economy, worth 439 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 126,642 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, and newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paramara's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Paramara is ranked 260,715th in the world and 6,475th in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 0.77 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
