The Bean-Loving Nation of Parasola is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Ovelord Daniel Beans with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.958 billion Parasoli enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parasoland. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Parasolan economy, worth 207 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 105,877 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Most citizens in Parasola are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Parasola's national animal is the banana-licking arthropod raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult Of Beans.

Parasola is ranked 20,103rd in the world and 585th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.13 Years.
