The South Carolinian Republic of The Palmetto is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Nikki Haley with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.814 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 16.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Carolinian economy, worth 712 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 148,004 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 459,820 per year while the poor average 36,653, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, billions of dollars are spent to take high-quality photos of the Carolina Wren Nebula, and every day's an auto-de-fé day. Crime is relatively low. 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 18,083rd in the world and 1st in Cobalt Network for Most Pro-Market, scoring 76.22 on the Rand Index.
