Paul Pasch

Population10.878 billion

LeaderPaul Pasch


The Inactive Nation of Paul Pasch is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Paul Pasch with a fair hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.878 billion Paschans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitali. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paschan economy, worth a remarkable 1,228 trillion celenes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,945 celenes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Paul Pasch is a silly poophead, builders across Paul Pasch are blocked up with orders for new public loos, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paul Pasch's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Paul Pasch is ranked 265,417th in the world and 633rd in Conch Kingdom for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -15.39 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
