The FLOATING PARADISE of Southern Palm Islands is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory vegetarianism. The cynical population of 2.681 billion Southern Palm Islandsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 27.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Southern Palm Islandsian economy, worth 153 trillion peso de palmyras a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,296 peso de palmyras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, and Southern Palm Islands has designated Southern Palm Islands City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Palm Islands's national animal is the palmyran leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Southern Palm Islands is ranked 53,935th in the world and 8th in Melayu Archipelago for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,018.23 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
