The Ordained Lands of Palutenia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor of the Goddess with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 7.053 billion Palutenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tetra. The average income tax rate is 21.8%.

The powerhouse Palutenian economy, worth 736 trillion Medallions a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 104,377 Medallions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palutenia's national animal is the Great White Shark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Solaris.

Palutenia is ranked 88,910th in the world and 4,412th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.43 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
