The Pubs of Parkplace is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 32.489 billion Parkplaceans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ParrrrTay City. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Parkplacean economy, worth a remarkable 2,362 trillion Daquireses a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,706 Daquireses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, and drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parkplace's national animal is the Chocolate Snow Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Parkplace is ranked 45,401st in the world and 64th in Canada for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 106.51 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
