The Republic of Pacific Palisades is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 676 million Palisadians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rogersville. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Palisadian economy, worth 48.7 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,108 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pacific Palisades's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Pacific Palisades is ranked 217,355th in the world and 4th in The Pacific Coast for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.36 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
