The United Technocratic Empire of United Paradisia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the senate with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.348 billion Paradisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysium. The average income tax rate is 8.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paradisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,026 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 191,930 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, the Paradisian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive. Crime is relatively low. United Paradisia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Paradisia is ranked 160,268th in the world and 7th in Paradisian Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 57.5 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
