The PS2 Puppet of Pallidonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.38 billion Pallidonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Law & Order and Environment not funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pallidonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,985 trillion Horses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 321,900 Horses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,315,607 per year while the poor average 14,413, a ratio of 160 to 1.

The government is a law unto itself, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, and getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Pallidonia. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pallidonia's national animal is the Dollar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pallidonia is ranked 83,859th in the world and 2,518th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 182 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
