Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The White Republic of Palix is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Snow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.782 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 primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense also on the agenda, 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 4.7%.

The powerhouse Palixian economy, worth 889 trillion palixes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 64,559 palixes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 248,831 per year while the poor average 11,516, a ratio of 21.6 to 1.

Teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, seafood restaurants assure customers 'If it lives in the sea, it's on our menu', many aides in John Snow's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, and randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Palixism.

Palix is ranked 45,154th in the world and 1,138th in Osiris for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 2,839.33 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
