The Empire of Palemonid is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Palemon with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 915 million Palemonidians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vilnius. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Palemonidian economy, worth 117 trillion Litas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 128,651 Litas, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins, and Palemon has just been declared ruler of Palemonid in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Palemonid's national animal is the Stork, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Palemonid is ranked 14,432nd in the world and 110th in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 355,651 Standard Monetary Units.
