The Rogue Isles of Palman is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pharoah Hannibal Walker with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 17.955 billion Palmani are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mercy Bay. The average income tax rate is 24.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Palmani economy, worth a remarkable 3,152 trillion palls a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,570 palls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, they say that Palmani made a dessert and called it peace, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Palmani weed picker are way up. Crime is totally unknown. Palman's national animal is the gunni, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Henotheism.

Palman is ranked 1,102nd in the world and 22nd in 10000 Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,212.16 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
