The Rogue Isles of Palman is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pharoah Hannibal Walker with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed population of 14.519 billion Palmani are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercy Bay. The average income tax rate is 9.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Palmani economy, worth a remarkable 2,432 trillion palls a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,541 palls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime is totally unknown. Palman's national animal is the gunni, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Henotheism.

Palman is ranked 9,495th in the world and 162nd in 10000 Islands for Most Pacifist, with 139.19 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
