The PS2 Puppet of Pallidonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by absolutely nobody with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.238 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.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pallidonian economy, worth a remarkable 5,957 trillion Horses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 366,886 Horses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,639,213 per year while the poor average 16,427, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, and bars are packed at all hours. 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, and its national religion is Anarchy.

Pallidonia is ranked 259,647th in the world and 10,364th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 0.17 quips per hour.
