The Republic of Palamien is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 536 million Palamas hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Züraberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Palamian economy, worth 56.1 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,628 Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 304,995 per year while the poor average 28,369, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Escalators are avoided at all costs, children of nonreligious parents are often barred from school festival events, when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. Crime is well under control. Palamien's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Palamien is ranked 136,561st in the world and 5,533rd in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.43 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
