The Papermaker Foundation is a fictional company from the webcomic Where There's Smoke.

With no remaining government body in Etowana, the Papermakers have secured complete sovereignty over the civilization, controlling most if not all parts of life through their lines of business. The CEO, Joe Papermaker, serves as the sole proprietor of all life in the country, with the Makerwatch, his private security company, officially recognizing him as a king.

Throughout the first two discs, the Papermakers are the primary antagonists, with rebellious organization Syndicate 33 assembled to end the Papermaker's dystopian-esque rule over the island continent before their business spreads overseas to other lands that have not yet adopted capitalism.
