The Fash Hammer of Palractus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Kolchak with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.707 billion Palractusii are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hildebrant. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Palractusii economy, worth a remarkable 1,547 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Furniture Restoration, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 200,746 marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, police nightsticks see use all day long, Hildebrant is a police state during international summits, and many are asking why the latest naval vessel is named after Saint Bartholomeus the Many Handed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palractus's national animal is the dentist, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Russian Orthodox Christianity.

Palractus is ranked 238,537th in the world and 304th in KAISERREICH for Least Corrupt Governments, with 15.95 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
