The City-State of Petalumadom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 20.713 billion Petalumadomians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 2.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Petalumadomian economy, worth a remarkable 3,796 trillion cypresian bills a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 183,308 cypresian bills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.
The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', Bird is one of the most popular forenames in Petalumadom, and the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Petalumadom's national animal is the bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
