The People's Republic of PASTIR is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emerys Merlin with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, devout population of 4.041 billion Wals have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emerys city. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient PASTIRian economy, worth 563 trillion Wals a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,378 Wals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military spending is on the increase, sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PASTIR's national animal is the Liger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PASTIR is ranked 950th in the world and 147th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 150 Valid Endorsements.
