The Democratic Republic of Paplostein is a very large, cultured nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 179 million Paplosteinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Paplosteinian economy, worth 13.0 trillion Runeses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,798 Runeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, many aides in Leader's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paplostein's national animal is the Dolphin, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Paplostein is ranked 104,051st in the world and 3,650th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 47.18 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
