The FLOATING PARADISE of Southern Palm Islands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Devadatta Akiraman with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.356 billion Southern Palm Islandsians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khurtubh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.5%.

The very strong Southern Palm Islandsian economy, worth 325 trillion peso de palmyras a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,765 peso de palmyras, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Southern Palm Islandsian military unleashed its biological weapons, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, and citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Hinduism.

Southern Palm Islands is ranked 83,367th in the world and 12th in Melayu Archipelago for Most Extreme, scoring 21.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
