The Republic of Palauu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 38.643 billion Palauuans enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Defense receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Palauuan economy, worth a remarkable 5,870 trillion rais a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 151,905 rais, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 537,698 per year while the poor average 30,985, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, the country is preparing for war, and soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Palauu's national animal is the giant clam, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Palauu is ranked 191,744th in the world and 6,561st in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.58 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
