The Floating Paradise of Southern Palm Islands is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Devadatta Akiraman with an even hand, and remarkable for its fear of technology, infamous sell-swords, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 7.889 billion Palmyrans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khurtubh. The average income tax rate is 36.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Southern Palm Islandsian economy, worth 820 trillion Palmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 103,943 Palmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens insist that there's no law against standing downwind when marijuana crops are burned off, recognizing the Southern Palm Islandsian flag qualifies you for citizenship, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Sanatana Dharma.

Southern Palm Islands is ranked 13,668th in the world and 3rd in Mandalanusa for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 56.96 Whatever.
