The PS2 Puppet of Pallidonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by absolutely nobody with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.777 billion Pallidonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pallidonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,669 trillion Horses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 338,907 Horses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,437,950 per year while the poor average 15,174, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Village elders are often called in to interpret voting outcomes in Parliament, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', brain injury is seen as a desirable outcome rather than a side effect of contact sports, and the only record being broken at sporting events is the highest death toll. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pallidonia's national animal is the Dollar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anarchy.

Pallidonia is ranked 217,622nd in the world and 7,502nd in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.67 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
