The Democratic States of Palvat is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the ministry of guidance with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.145 billion Palvatians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of blossom. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Palvatian economy, worth 82.1 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,733 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is avowedly secular, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palvat's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is secular state.

Palvat is ranked 198,521st in the world and 1,949th in 10000 Islands for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -13.53 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
