Paul Incorporated

Population605 million


The Oppressed Peoples of Paul Incorporated is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 605 million employees are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.7%.

The very strong employed economy, worth 38.0 trillion paulcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 62,734 paulcoins, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, and everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paul Incorporated's national animal is the tit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Paul Incorporated is ranked 236,385th in the world and 317th in Karma for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -10.32 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
