The Commonwealth of Palgo is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.674 billion Palgoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palawan. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palgoan economy, worth 219 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 131,386 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Pocket dialling is a criminal offence, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palgo's national animal is the Naked mole-rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Palgo is ranked 47,091st in the world and 1,415th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 290.11083516228 Days.
