The Republic of Palancia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sofía Bosque with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.946 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madrid. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.7%.

The all-consuming Palancian economy, worth 360 trillion Republican Notes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 72,943 Republican Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 220,188 per year while the poor average 18,825, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Palancian language, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 54,781st in the world and 155th in New Western Empire for Highest Average Incomes, with 72,943.66 Standard Monetary Units.
