The Commonwealth of Palenhold is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Connor Wesley with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.713 billion 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luskan. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Palenholdian economy, worth 286 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 77,222 Pals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lobster tastes best when it is red, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Pal treacle machine, Palenholdian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Colleagues of the Holy Iron.

Palenhold is ranked 70,673rd in the world and 1,587th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 3.71 billion Capita.
