The Empire of Greater Saint-Paul is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 494 million Paulistians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Paul. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Paulistian economy, worth 36.4 trillion Real Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,694 Real Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Paulistian Space Agency, and the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greater Saint-Paul is ranked 100,393rd in the world and 2,976th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 36.4 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
