The Republic of Paraguay Occidental is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nicanor Duarte Frutos with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.429 billion Paraguayos 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nueva Asunción. The average income tax rate is 60.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Paraguay Occidentalian economy, worth 148 trillion Guaranis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 103,690 Guaranis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, a few people seem to spend their whole time complaining, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paraguay Occidental's national animal is the Bell Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Paraguay Occidental is ranked 92,532nd in the world and 297th in United Kingdom for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,535.11 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
