The Imperial Republic of Paulotzia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Paul I with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.222 billion Paulotzians 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, 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 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Paulotzian economy, worth a remarkable 3,309 trillion Paulies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 181,621 Paulies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and group hugs break out during floor votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paulotzia's national animal is the Black Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is all religions.

Paulotzia is ranked 240,602nd in the world and 679th in Europeia for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
