The Unified States of Parenlord is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Garence Spencer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.105 billion Parenlords enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White Mountain. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Parenlordian economy, worth 319 trillion Parenlordian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,908 Parenlordian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers stream their classified military operations live for millions of fans, ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parenlord's national animal is the Mugger Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Polytheism.

Parenlord is ranked 235,123rd in the world and 439th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 50.72 Workforce Participation Rate.
