The Rogue Nation of Palins is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by a Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 16.871 billion Palins are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Juneau. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Palinese economy, worth a remarkable 3,096 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 183,556 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 671,036 per year while the poor average 35,615, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Home renovation shows are increasingly popular, the government has to take out its Visa to eliminate visas, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, and diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Palins's national animal is the Grizzly Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Palins is ranked 269,142nd in the world and 41st in Arctic for Smartest Citizens, with 0.57 quips per hour.
