The Captain's Fleet of Paper Boats is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 7.036 billion Paper Boat Captains hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 61.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Soryan economy, worth 207 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 29,518 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 193,761st in the world and 139th in Shinka for Most Armed, with 0.22 Weapons Per Person.
