Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Pallamara is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Duke Valentinian XII with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.457 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 55.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Pallamaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,000 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 183,260 Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 628,723 per year while the poor average 39,204, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, Grand Duke Valentinian XII's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon. 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 Land Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secular Nationalism.

Pallamara is ranked 9,093rd in the world and 468th in Osiris for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 16,039.3 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
