The PS2 Puppet of Pallidonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by absolutely nobody with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, otherworldly petting zoo, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.351 billion Pallidonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pallidonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,478 trillion Horses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 335,450 Horses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,413,079 per year while the poor average 15,020, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, and tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pallidonia's national animal is the Dollar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anarchy.

Pallidonia is ranked 1,333rd in the world and 5th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 100 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
