The White Republic of Palix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Snow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.734 billion Palixians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The minute, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, with Defense and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.
The powerhouse Palixian economy, worth 761 trillion palixes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. Average income is 64,926 palixes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 245,401 per year while the poor average 11,951, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.
The criminal underworld is awash with sausage smuggling, litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, volunteers are signing up to take arms against an incursion of flesh-eating zombies (Palix has found 2 easter eggs), and the government spends millions of palixes every year prosecuting spammers. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Palix's national animal is the mammoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Palixism.
