The Ravanian Sword of Justice of Saint-Paul is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Saint-Paul with an iron fist, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.422 billion Saint-Paulians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-Paul-in-the-field. The average income tax rate is 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and all-natural foods are becoming a major fad. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint-Paul's national animal is the horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Circle of the Raven, and its currency is the Talent.

Saint-Paul is ranked 11th in The Iron League and 112,688th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -4 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
