The Democratic States of Palvat is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the minister of guidance with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.593 billion Palvatians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of blossom. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palvatian economy, worth 246 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,097 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. 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 9,069th in the world and 197th in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with 229 Meters Of Sunlight.
