The Constitutional Monarchy of Palmstars is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Crown Monarch Batis I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.724 billion Palmstarsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palmis. The average income tax rate is 44.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palmstarsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,721 trillion golden buttonses a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 213,884 golden buttonses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Baby dolls thrown in the trash are a leading cause of panic attacks, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, government ministers have eclectic tastes in curtains, and baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Palmstars's national animal is the ring-tailed lemur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is worshiping the Pantheon of Stars.

Palmstars is ranked 268,153rd in the world and 903rd in NationStates for Most Patriotic, with 0.5 flags saluted per person per day.
