The Grand Duchy of Pallamara is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Duke Valentijn III with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.544 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 63.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Pallamaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,215 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 185,809 Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 556,595 per year while the poor average 48,480, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.

Police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, and the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification. 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 34,164th in the world and 7th in Ajax for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,508.63 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
