The City-State of Petalumadom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 28.836 billion Petalumadomians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Petalumadomian economy, worth a remarkable 5,129 trillion cypresian bills a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,869 cypresian bills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', Bird is one of the most popular forenames in Petalumadom, and the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Petalumadom's national animal is the bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Petalumadom is ranked 208,074th in the world and 2,160th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 3.64 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
