The Royal Commonwealth of Palmyrion is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lakan Alexander II with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.499 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 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 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palmyrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,290 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 151,895 Palmyrian Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, and ghost regiments exist only on paper. 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 42,298th in the world and 27th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,962.18 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
