The Democratic Republic of Paropia is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 348 million Paropians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boreas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.2%.

The thriving Paropian economy, worth 27.8 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 79,940 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paropia's national animal is the Dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Paropia is ranked 103,404th in the world and 145th in Thaecia for Highest Economic Output, with 27.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
