The Dictatorship of Paverium is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 356 million Paverians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delta Beta City. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Paverian economy, worth 37.4 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 105,129 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The tribal zone has been opened to up to 'economic interest' groups, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, and glassy-eyed Paverian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paverium's national animal is the mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Paverium is ranked 177,090th in the world and 7,780th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -72.44 on the Rand Index.
