OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The White Republic of Palix is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by John Snow with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.196 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 Commerce. 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.

Calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, and only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Palix's national animal is the mammoth, its national religion is Palixism, and its currency is the palix.

Palix is ranked 830th in Balder and 22,966th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 2.2 Insults Per Minute (net).
