The White Republic of Palix is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by John Snow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.982 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, moralistic individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Soda Sales and Retail.

People eagerly queue days at A&E to wait for their free healthcare, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Palix's national animal is the mammoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Palixism, and its currency is the palix.

Palix is ranked 1st in The North Arctic and 39,928th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 14 on the Enoch Index.
