The Royal Commonwealth of Palmyrion is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lakan Alexander II with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 8.862 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aragon. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palmyrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,370 trillion Palmyrian Pesos a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 154,648 Palmyrian Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Palmyrian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, cities are engulfed by smog, and advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palmyrion's national animal is the Palmyrian Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Palmyrion is ranked 9,492nd in the world and 26th in Greater Dienstad for Highest Economic Output, with 1,370 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
