The Slightly Socialist Democracy of Paul Pasch is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Camden with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.286 billion Paschans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitali. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Paschan economy, worth 719 trillion celenes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,703 celenes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The world still seems flat to some people in space, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down. Crime is totally unknown. Paul Pasch's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Paul Pasch is ranked 7,174th in the world and 280th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,240.26 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
