Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Pallamara is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duke Valentijn III with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.82 billion Pallamarans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vrijpoort. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Pallamaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,068 trillion Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 183,614 Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 620,393 per year while the poor average 40,194, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pallamara's national animal is the Domesticated Fennec, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular Nationalism.

Pallamara is ranked 10,445th in the world and 4th in Ajax for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 8,705.06 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
