The Empire of Paulis is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 14.654 billion Paulisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Paulisian economy, worth 180 trillion Strips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 12,345 Strips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and gambling is outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paulis's national animal is the salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Paulis is ranked 27,284th in the world and 23rd in ITALIA for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
