The Peripherals of Paranoia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by CK Flynn with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.396 billion Paranoians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Psychosis. The average income tax rate is 65.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Paranoid economy, worth 230 trillion krónas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,047 krónas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, the government is avowedly secular, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paranoia's national animal is the crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Delusionalism.

Paranoia is ranked 275th in the world and 32nd in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 283 Valid Endorsements.
