The Peoples Commune of Palmasas is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Peoples Representative Joana Jill with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.239 billion Palmasans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corastelle. The average income tax rate is 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Palmasan economy, worth 110 trillion Palmasan Corvas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,458 Palmasan Corvas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Corastelle, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palmasas's national animal is the Palmasan carp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Palmasas is ranked 198,601st in the world and 8,728th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -12.41 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
