The Grand Duchy of Pallamara is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Grand Duke Valentijn III with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.903 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 64.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Pallamaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,281 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 185,662 Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 568,024 per year while the poor average 47,005, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects, and tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort. 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 180,621st in the world and 30th in Ajax for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 37.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
