The Third Republic of Paledonn is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Henry Paulson Jr with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.367 billion Paledonnians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Paledonnian economy, worth a remarkable 3,871 trillion Doubloons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 289,649 Doubloons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 840,066 per year while the poor average 79,097, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Bar brawls are an hourly occurrence, the arms industry is strictly regulated, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and preservative-laden Paledonnian cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Paledonn's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Paledonn is ranked 192,153rd in the world and 10th in U R N for Lowest Crime Rates, with 40.98 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
