The Pubs of Parkplace is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 20.405 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although the Environment and Education are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ParrrrTay City. The average income tax rate is 65%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and all beauty contests have been banned. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parkplace's national animal is the Chocolate Snow Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Daquires.

Parkplace is ranked 145th in Canada and 104,447th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.043 Stalins.
