The Dominion of Plaid Town is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Silk Dealer with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.961 billion Denimites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Impenetrable Citidel of Velourna. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Denimite economy, worth a remarkable 2,063 trillion Flannels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 259,162 Flannels, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, the government has enacted freedom of information, and unemployed youngsters trained to kill are being released en masse into society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plaid Town's national animal is the Bolt, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Machine Washable.

Plaid Town is ranked 116,860th in the world and 6,120th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 16.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
