The Duchy of Las Palmeras is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.302 billion Palmerans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Las Palmerasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,321 trillion Nueva Pesetas a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 99,317 Nueva Pesetas, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

The Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, the army spends more time producing 'romantic videos' than actually training soldiers, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Las Palmeras's national animal is the Laughing Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Las Palmeras is ranked 119,657th in the world and 1st in New Gensokyo for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -4 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
