The City-State of Petalumadom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 34.753 billion Petalumadomians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 9.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Petalumadomian economy, worth a remarkable 6,036 trillion cypresian bills a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,689 cypresian bills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', Bird is one of the most popular forenames in Petalumadom, and the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Petalumadom's national animal is the bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
Petalumadom is ranked 71,421st in the world and 320th in 10000 Islands for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 212,235 Standard Monetary Units.
