The Democratic Republic of Paplostein is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 547 million Paplosteinians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Paplosteinian economy, worth 48.7 trillion Runeses a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,098 Runeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, and the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Leader Pics" has made Leader's mom a celebrity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paplostein's national animal is the Dolphin.

Paplostein is ranked 26,823rd in the world and 755th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 70.11 Years.
