The Rogue Isles of Palman is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pharoah Hannibal Walker with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 16.271 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, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Environment also on the agenda, 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 14.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Palmani economy, worth a remarkable 2,783 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. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,046 palls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, Palmani tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, and the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme. 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 31,913th in the world and 477th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.83 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
