The Evil Conservative Empire of The Palentine is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Jhessan Spaulding with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 34.899 billion Palentineans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Education are 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 10.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palentinean economy, worth an astonishing 10,736 trillion greenbacks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 307,657 greenbacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 165,274th in the world and 19th in Antarctic Oasis for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.17 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
