The Pubs of Parkplace is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 38.367 billion Parkplaceans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ParrrrTay City. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Parkplacean economy, worth a remarkable 3,150 trillion Daquireses a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,124 Daquireses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance, and drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parkplace's national animal is the Cookie Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Parkplace is ranked 254,987th in the world and 183rd in Canada for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -15.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
