The Pubs of Parkplace is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 21.223 billion Parkplaceans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 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.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. 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 14th in Canada and 3,081st in the world for Safest, scoring 658.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
