The City-State of Petalumadom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.079 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining industries.
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 crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Petalumadom's national animal is the bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the cypresian bill.
