The White Federation of Paline is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.495 billion Palinos live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Senata. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Palinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,454 trillion E⠀s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 171,260 E⠀s, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 954,779 per year while the poor average 15,336, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

The Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Paline, the SWAT team always rings twice, police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, and caps with skulls on them are the height of fashion. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Paline's national animal is the jorji, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Paline is ranked 245,180th in the world and 6,476th in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -8.37 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
