The Isle of Parenthos is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.139 billion Chefs enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Voa. The average income tax rate is 69.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Parenthosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,050 trillion Berries a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 129,059 Berries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, and you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly. Crime is totally unknown. Parenthos's national animal is the Loch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Conscience.

Parenthos is ranked 22,351st in the world and 1st in The Other Side for Most Pacifist, with 117.25 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
