The Pubs of Parkplace is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 21.525 billion Parkplaceans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever 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 is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although the Environment and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ParrrrTay City. The average income tax rate is 69%, 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.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and extreme political groups are outlawed. 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 119th in Canada and 88,523rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -9 on the Hayek Index.
