The Fusean State of Paxiosolange is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Alphonsus VI with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.42 billion North Fuseans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Damarques. The average income tax rate is 72.6%.

The frighteningly efficient North Fusean economy, worth 773 trillion Piasters a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 142,624 Piasters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, and families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paxiosolange's national animal is the Moss Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Irreligion.

Paxiosolange is ranked 20,361st in the world and 1,359th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 2,770.53 milliStalins.
