The Mad with Love Nation of PsychoPantachy is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ra Ra Rasputin with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, compulsory military service, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.309 billion PsychoPantachians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Psychotopia. The average income tax rate is 91.4%.

The frighteningly efficient PsychoPantachyian economy, worth 638 trillion Drugs 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 a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 192,917 Drugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Main battle tanks stalk the woods of PsychoPantachy in search of Unicorns, the government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, PsychoPantachy isn't what it used to be, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PsychoPantachy's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Socialism.

PsychoPantachy is ranked 7,187th in the world and 220th in the South Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 32,068.37 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
