Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Grand Duchy of Pallamara is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Duke Valentijn III with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.118 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 59.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pallamaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,125 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 183,969 Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 585,145 per year while the poor average 44,034, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, a small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and Grand Duke Valentijn III sports gold-plated grillz to promote the government's hard money policy. 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 175,967th in the world and 29th in Ajax for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -17.61 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
