The Commonwealth of The New Palaces is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Enard Keflen with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.716 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 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palecian economy, worth 225 trillion Scarlets a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 131,351 Scarlets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fat-shaming is now public policy, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and the comic book series 'Enard Keflen and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. 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, and its national religion is Buddhism.

The New Palaces is ranked 196,213th in the world and 210th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Avoided, scoring 0.51 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
