Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Ravanian Sword of Justice of Saint-Paul is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Saint-Paul with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.393 billion Justices of Saint-Paulian 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.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-Paul-in-the-fields. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Justice of Saint-Paulian economy, worth 604 trillion Talents a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 81,808 Talents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and it is illegal to own a mobile phone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Justice of Saint-Paul's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Circle of the Raven.

Justice of Saint-Paul is ranked 7th in The Iron League and 135,495th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -3 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
