Population7.973 billion

LeaderHer Worshipfulness Queen Pauline I


The French Delight of Pauline Bonaparte is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Her Worshipfulness Queen Pauline I with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.973 billion Bonapartes are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paris. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Bonapartan economy, worth 433 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,325 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and under love's heavy burden Her Worshipfulness Queen Pauline I sinks lower in the political right's esteem. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pauline Bonaparte's national animal is the lady-in-waiting, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pauline Bonaparte is ranked 235,713th in the world and 28th in Taijitu for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -6.24 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
