The Palentinan republic of Pauliestien is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pablo Chunkasso with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 1.176 billion Pauliestienians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Pallentine. The average income tax rate is 20.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pauliestienian economy, worth 77.7 trillion Pallatins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 66,095 Pallatins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Pauliestienians, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pauliestien's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christian.

Pauliestien is ranked 37,671st in the world and 1,948th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 65.49 Years.
