The Captain's Fleet of Paper Boats is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 6.751 billion Paper Boat Captains 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Soryan economy, worth 196 trillion Paper Boats a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 29,116 Paper Boats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paper Boats's national animal is the Paper Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Paper Boats is ranked 213,767th in the world and 62nd in The Embassy for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 10,918.72 Standard Monetary Units.
