The Matriarchy of PapaBellum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Regent PapaBellum with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.896 billion Draconixeses 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bella. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient PapaBellumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,979 trillion Blood Pounds 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 a breathtaking 640,600 Blood Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, the might of the entire PapaBellumian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, and officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PapaBellum's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Intrabellum Pact.

PapaBellum is ranked 171,462nd in the world and 2nd in Papastan for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -3.54 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
