The Dominion of Plaid Town is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Silk Dealer with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.974 billion Denimites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Impenetrable Citidel of Velourna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Denimite economy, worth a remarkable 2,069 trillion Flannels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 259,535 Flannels, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, the government has enacted freedom of information, and unemployed youngsters trained to kill are being released en masse into society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plaid Town's national animal is the Bolt, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Machine Washable.

Plaid Town is ranked 53,243rd in the world and 2,863rd in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,573.25 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
