The SPU Member State of Greater Saint-Paul is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Arthur IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.234 billion Paulistians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Paul. The average income tax rate is 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Paulistian economy, worth 116 trillion Real Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is 94,210 Real Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, red rinses are frequently applied to grey hair, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, and weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Saint-Paul's national animal is the Cockatiel, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Greater Saint-Paul is ranked 122,919th in the world and 5,948th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 20.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
