The Republic of Palancia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sofía Bosque with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.419 billion Palancians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madrid. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Palancian economy, worth 369 trillion Republican Notes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,247 Republican Notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, and abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palancia's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Palancia is ranked 159,132nd in the world and 154th in New Western Empire for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -3.46 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
