Paul Pasch

Population8.222 billion

LeaderJohn Finch Camden


The Semi-Inactive Republic of Paul Pasch is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by John Finch Camden with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.222 billion Paschans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitali. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Paschan economy, worth 842 trillion celenes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,451 celenes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paul Pasch's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Penguinism.

Paul Pasch is ranked 237,905th in the world and 9,795th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -18.36 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
