CapitalNew Paulu


The Federal Republic of Paulu is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Boshas population. The devout population of 631 million Pauluans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Paulu. The average income tax rate is 11.3%.

The Pauluan economy, worth 31.8 trillion Nabounts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,340 Nabounts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, the best-of-the-best athletes have been replaced by the best-of-the-mediocre, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of New Paulu. Crime is relatively low. Paulu's national animal is the Boshas, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Paulu is ranked 228,289th in the world and 5,911th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.8 bananas ingested per day.
