The Theocracy of Paradisus Islands is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Grand Patriarch Reinhardt Cardenas II with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 8.797 billion Para-Islanders are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Paradise City. The average income tax rate is 67.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Para-islander economy, worth a remarkable 1,243 trillion Cruzexes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,377 Cruzexes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Many former slaves are finding out there is such a thing as a free lunch, commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, former slave-owners hope there are no hard feelings when they apply for jobs from their erstwhile charges, and a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Paradisus Islands's national animal is the White Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Paradisus Islands is ranked 100,372nd in the world and 38th in Latinoamerica Libre for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,375.14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
