OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Commonwealth of Palgo is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Smaug with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.047 billion Palgoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erebor. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palgoan economy, worth 300 trillion Euros 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 major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 146,636 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, racehorses move a lot slower these days, and re-education centers are being added to most prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palgo's national animal is the Balrog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Palgo is ranked 217,430th in the world and 8,145th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -320.14 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
