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 keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.043 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.

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 Commerce. 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.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Saint-Paul, and the government is funneling billions into Cape Saint-Paul following the shuttle crash. 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 9th in The Iron League and 24,129th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
