The South Carolinian Republic of The Palmetto is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Nikki Haley with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.369 billion Carolinians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charleston. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Carolinian economy, worth 779 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 145,158 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 444,105 per year while the poor average 36,751, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Children must make a homemade spinach and ricotta rotolo by high school or be held back, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Carolinian politicians, ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen, and coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list. Crime is well under control. The Palmetto's national animal is the Carolina Wren, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Palmetto is ranked 13,640th in the world and 3rd in Cobalt Network for Nudest, with 215 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
