The Supremacy of Paline is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.222 billion Palinos are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Senata-Kolozan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Palinean economy, worth 676 trillion ES a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 129,601 ES , but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 490,774 per year while the poor average 23,785, a ratio of 20.6 to 1.

Modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, and colonial subjects have Palinean culture shoved down their throats. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Paline's national animal is the jorji, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Paline is ranked 50,670th in the world and 991st in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 193.88496619132 Days.
