The Royal Commonwealth of Palmyrion is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lakambini Elizabeth the Commoner with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 11.606 billion Palmyrians 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 Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aragon. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palmyrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,732 trillion Palmyrian Pesos a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,257 Palmyrian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, and the suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palmyrion's national animal is the Palmyrian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Palmyrion is ranked 13,573rd in the world and 15th in Greater Dienstad for Most Secular, with 83.29 Atheism Rate.
