Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Commonwealth of Palenhold is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.921 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 large, 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 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Palenholdian economy, worth 165 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 86,046 Pals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, the nation is known as the cheapskates of The North Pacific, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. 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.

Palenhold is ranked 42,101st in the world and 1,899th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 86,046.39 Standard Monetary Units.
