The Evil Conservative Empire of The Palentine is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Jhessan Spaulding with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.402 billion Palentineans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Burgh. The average income tax rate is 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Palentinean economy, worth a remarkable 8,541 trillion greenbacks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 280,950 greenbacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, graffiti graces every city's streets, the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, and the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Palentine's national animal is the sphinxian treecat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Reaganism.

The Palentine is ranked 1,458th in the world and 3rd in Antarctic Oasis for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
