Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The White Republic of Palix is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Snow with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.432 billion Palixians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Industry and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The powerhouse Palixian economy, worth 856 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 Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 68,910 palixes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 251,917 per year while the poor average 13,370, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Calling out of the blue has become taboo, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and the populace has a pathological fear of computers more advanced than pocket calculators. 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 and its national religion is Palixism.

Palix is ranked 4,005th in Lazarus and 129,737th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring -1.157 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
