The Palentinan republic of Pauliestien is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Colin Bergatte with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.752 billion Pauliestieners 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silvershine City. The average income tax rate is 58.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pauliestienian economy, worth 294 trillion Pallatins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,075 Pallatins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pauliestien's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christian.

Pauliestien is ranked 14,966th in the world and 767th in Osiris for Best Weather, with 177 Meters Of Sunlight.
