The Federal Republic of The United States of Paul is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Ŭangari Matai with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.113 billion Upaulians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Espero. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Upaulian economy, worth 540 trillion Gazets a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 173,738 Gazets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United States of Paul's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The United States of Paul is ranked 181,508th in the world and 10th in Tierra for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.5 Crimes Per Hour.
