The Horrible Collapse Scenario of CBG-Palisade is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Conglomeration of warlords with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.101 billion complete imbeciles 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.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gone but not forgotten. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish spess lad economy, worth 86.1 trillion Transit Chits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 27,779 Transit Chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CBG-Palisade's national animal is the Naval AI and its national religion is Poopenfartenism.

CBG-Palisade is ranked 236,111th in the world and 6th in The KG Puppet Hole for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 19 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
