The Commonwealth of Palenhold
“Striving towards a brigter future”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Commonwealth of Palenhold is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 626 million Palenholdians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luskan. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Palenholdian economy, worth 54.0 trillion Pals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 86,295 Pals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, third world countries are rich in "I Love Luskan" t-shirts, and tourists on boat cruises can't figure out why they smell so fishy afterward. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palenhold's national animal is the Owlbear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
