Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Ravanian Sword of Justice of Saint-Paul is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Saint-Paul with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 8.067 billion Saint-Paulians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saint-Paulian economy, worth 678 trillion Talents a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,078 Talents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, and corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Circle of the Raven.

Saint-Paul is ranked 6th in The Iron League and 29,641st in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 11 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
