The New Shimmer of Palaemon is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 19.807 billion Palaemonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pompeii. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palaemonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,664 trillion palaes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 134,538 palaes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, economists speak of trusting in the Tao of Free Market Capitalism, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, and matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Palaemon's national animal is the angora cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is philosophical debate.

Palaemon is ranked 5,949th in the world and 1st in Freshness for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,997.71 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
