This is a list of paper sizes in common use around the world.

Nation Most common paper size used Comments
 Austro-Caldera A4 (210 × 297 mm) Although Caldera originally used Hendalarksara paper dimensions, mass immigration as well as the prevalence of the Phoenix Trade Union led to the adoption of the internationally popular A4.
 Burgundie Letter (8.5 × 11 in) Because Burgoignians aren't savages. Victors of the Standardized Stationary Melee of 1714, in which the Oligarchia grammaticorum adopted the 8.5x11 standard for its letters, the papermakers of the southern Dericania coast started the globalization of Letter sized paper. Their two-sheet mold technique was the most advanced Occidental papermaking method of the age. Their pulp drying frames spanned the maximum stretch of a papermakers arms, about 44". Many molds were 17" front to back. The resulting 44"x17" sheets were cut down to 8.5"x11" pieces to maximize the usage of the sheets.
 Caphiria A4 (210 × 297 mm) Caphiria uses the ISO 216 standard for all of its paper sizes.
 Cartadania A4 (210 × 297 mm) Cartadania uses the ISO 216 standard for all of its paper sizes.
 Faneria Standard Long Sheet (8.5 × 13.75 in) The size of standard paper sheets in Faneria originated during the Fhainnin Civil War in 1908 from a desire to implement rationalist ideological policies while maintaining a level of standardization with the outside world; as a result, the paper nearly matches the Golden Ratio. Letter 8.5 x 11 paper is also common but not used for official documentation.
 Hendalarsk Hendalarskischer Papierstandard-4 (H4) (250 x 353 mm) The native Hendalarskara paper standard makes use of the same square-root-of-2 principles as the more internationally popular A-series, except that the Hendalarskara system has been metricised (all sizes have one side which corresponds to a factor of 1m).
 Kiravia Valēka Legal (9¾ × 15 in) Originated as a customary professional standard during the early 20800s among attorneys and legal printers in Valēka, and became widespread in the rest of the country in large part because so many mercantile contracts were printed on it. Its status as the national standard was cemented during Kirosocialism, as printers built by the state-owned Typographical Machine Works for general office use were designed to fit Valēka Legal size and the state-owned paper mills were directed to cut Valēka Legal in the largest quantities. A 21198 bill in the Federal Stanora to transition to an A4 standard was abandoned after impassioned street protests by paper and printing workers' unions, Coscivian nationalists, Kirosocialists, and National-Vigesimalists.
 Urcea Letter (8.5 × 11 in) A4 is also accepted from its usage in some Levantine Union countries. Urcea adopted the letter format following its widespread adoption by Levantine mercantile interests as detailed in the Burgundie entry above.
