Palvotic islands

The Colony of Palvotic islands is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its digital currency, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 269 million Palvotic Porymonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Palvotic islandsian economy, worth 2.85 trillion Godjuwels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 10,594 Godjuwels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-vaxxers are right about the government injecting diseases into people, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Palvotic Porymonians, foreign envoys that want to visit Palvotic islands now have to navigate real minefields in addition to the political ones, and mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palvotic islands's national animal is the White crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Palvotic islands is ranked 86,903rd in the world and 817th in 10000 Islands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 212.3 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
