The Unified States of Parenlord is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Holden Sawyer with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.873 billion Parenlords enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White Mountain. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Parenlordian economy, worth 184 trillion Parenlordian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 98,458 Parenlordian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holden Sawyer can be seen doing doughnuts in a new Rambogini, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parenlord's national animal is the Mugger Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Polytheism.

Parenlord is ranked 80,186th in the world and 132nd in The Free Nations Region for Highest Economic Output, with 184 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
