Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Ravanian Sword of Justice of Saint-Paul is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Saint-Paul with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.341 billion Saint-Paulians 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 Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-Paul-in-the-field. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saint-Paulian economy, worth 567 trillion Talents a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,350 Talents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is The Circle of the Raven.

Saint-Paul is ranked 2nd in The Iron League and 70,035th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -11 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
