The French Delight of Pauline Bonaparte is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Her Worshipfulness Queen Pauline I with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.822 billion Bonapartes are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paris. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Bonapartan economy, worth 542 trillion francs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 55,223 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, the armed forces have designated 'murder teams' that root out rebels in Brasilistan, captured Brasilistani POWs are staying in 5-star hotels, and government negotiators never forget to say "pretty please" when begging for custody of its criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pauline Bonaparte's national animal is the lady-in-waiting, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pauline Bonaparte is ranked 165,037th in the world and 468th in Carcassonne for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 731.47 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
