The RORMS Defender of Pauls is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Paul with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 14.864 billion Paulsians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pauls. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Paulsian economy, worth 66.8 trillion Sohs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 4,493 Sohs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All industry is owned and run by the government, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, Pauls has designated Pauls as its capital city, and Paul has just been declared ruler of Pauls in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pauls's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Defenderism.

Pauls is ranked 159,728th in the world and 4th in Monarchist gang for Most Developed, scoring 41.13 on the Human Development Index.
