The Administrative Territory of Paradis is an island located off the western coast of Tawuse on the southernmost tip of Arcturia. As well as the smallest in land area, the island hosts the smallest population within the union. Although settled for hundreds of years, only one settlement larger than a village exists on the coast of the Paradis Strait, known as Tenerre. The city of Tenerre has a population little over 20,00 with little increase since its founding due to clashes between Tawusian settlers and native Paradisians within the mountainous forests. Tenerre is the only region of the island with a human majority with the remaining 12,000 residents of the island belonging to one of three lupine tribes. Due to its lack of provincial status, Paradis is governed by the province of Centro, a region directly across the Paradis Strait.

Although relations between the governing body of Centro and the tribal communities on the island may have been tense in the past, the relationship between the lupine and human populations have improved massively since the Tenerre summit of 1972. In this time, the Tawusian government has worked with the tribespeople of Paradis to grant representation within the National Congress and Risolveré. The island's lupine inhabitants elect tribal leaders to represent the needs of Paradissians and freedom of movement has been granted for Paradisians to migrate to the mainland if they so desire. However, in the forty-nine years since the consolidation of the Paradis accords at the Tenerre summit, very few Paradisians have left the familiarity of rural island life.
