Saint Pallas

Population636 million



The Queendom of Saint Pallas is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 636 million Pallasians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mycenae. The average income tax rate is 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Pallasian economy, worth 44.6 trillion polias a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,140 polias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tabloids publicly shun nurses for not calling home on the weekends, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, and Pallasian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader. Crime is totally unknown. Saint Pallas's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Saint Pallas is ranked 11,277th in the world and 198th in Europe for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,618.65 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
