The Republic of The New Palaces is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Fastyn Gwen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 2.901 billion Palecians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catagh. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palecian economy, worth 451 trillion Scarlets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 155,563 Scarlets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one born in The New Palaces can fix a leaky faucet, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, third world countries are rich in "I Love Catagh" t-shirts, and business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The New Palaces's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The New Palaces is ranked 12,185th in the world and 18th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,973.88 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
