The White Republic of Palix is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Snow with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.119 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, prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.
The powerhouse Palixian economy, worth 788 trillion palixes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. Average income is 70,935 palixes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 272,734 per year while the poor average 12,704, a ratio of 21.5 to 1.
Citizens have never heard foreign radio, the nation's favourite colour is white (Palix has found 1 easter egg), the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, and the criminal underworld is awash with sausage smuggling. 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.
