The United Provinces of Parzal is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Viklan Von Henstein with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.921 billion Parzalians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flora. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Parzalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,236 trillion Viks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,876 Viks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,098,573 per year while the poor average 21,199, a ratio of 51.8 to 1.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parzal's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Parzal is ranked 64,266th in the world and 52nd in Confederacy of Allied States for Most Authoritarian, with 869.17 milliStalins.
