The Unverified CII Prescriptions of Palos Heights is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Mighty Chest Hair of Palos Heights with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.258 billion DEMONYMADJS love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thunder Bluff. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Palos Heightsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,172 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 223,028 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and lobotomised jaywalkers can barely ambulate let alone repeat their offences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Palos Heights's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Art Deco.

Palos Heights is ranked 70,753rd in the world and 239th in Forest for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 62.15 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
