The SPU Member State of Greater Saint-Paul is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Arthur IV with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.174 billion Paulistians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Paul. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Paulistian economy, worth 302 trillion Real Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 95,398 Real Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, billions of Real Marks are being blown on orbital weapons development, and frustrated women are overjoyed at the provision of communal washing machines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Saint-Paul's national animal is the Cockatiel, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Greater Saint-Paul is ranked 174,588th in the world and 8,037th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -70.33 on the Rand Index.
