Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The White Republic of Palix is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by John Snow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of public education, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.079 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Defense and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The powerhouse Palixian economy, worth 894 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 68,429 palixes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 268,500 per year while the poor average 11,858, a ratio of 22.6 to 1.

Internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, village elders are often called in to interpret voting outcomes in Parliament, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. 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 and its national religion is Palixism.

Palix is ranked 57,545th in the world and 1,739th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 0.61 Stalins.
