The Rogue Isles of Palman is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pharoah Hannibal Walker with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 20.888 billion Palmani are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercy Bay. The average income tax rate is 31.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Palmani economy, worth a remarkable 3,668 trillion palls a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,607 palls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Palmani weed picker are way up, Palmani seem to be catching more chills, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime is totally unknown. Palman's national animal is the gunni, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Henotheism.

Palman is ranked 264,207th in the world and 1,255th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -19.26 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
