The Ordained Lands of Palutenia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor of the Goddess with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.046 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tetra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.0%.

The powerhouse Palutenian economy, worth 448 trillion Medallions a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 110,764 Medallions, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 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 75,493rd in the world and 4,196th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 59.59 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
