The Imperial Republic of Paulotzia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Paul I with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.763 billion Paulotzians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paulopolis. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paulotzian economy, worth a remarkable 3,243 trillion Paulies a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 193,487 Paulies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military is plagued with unethical researchers, parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paulotzia's national animal is the Hippie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is all religions.

Paulotzia is ranked 188,800th in the world and 878th in Europeia for Fattest Citizens, with 6.85 Obesity Rate.
