The Republic of Patou Isles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Eugénie with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.077 billion Patou Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaïa Harbor. The average income tax rate is 21.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Patou Islander economy, worth 442 trillion cute puppies a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 143,784 cute puppies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, religious education is a new government priority, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, and rude retail employees are now even ruder homeless panhandlers. Crime is totally unknown. Patou Isles's national animal is the golden retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Patou Isles is ranked 79,881st in the world and 912th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,470.89 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
