The People's Republic of Palmasas is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Peoples Representative Joana Jill with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.023 billion Palmasans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corastelle. The average income tax rate is 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Palmasan economy, worth 78.7 trillion Palmasan Corvas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,949 Palmasan Corvas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Palmasas, and newspapers are running a front-page picture of Peoples Representative Joana Jill holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palmasas's national animal is the Palmasan carp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Palmasas is ranked 196,703rd in the world and 9,584th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8.53 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
