The Most Serene Republic of Parlton is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Isadora Krum with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.326 billion Parltonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosebourg. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Parltonian economy, worth 242 trillion Parlish Marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,200 Parlish Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, and Parltonian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Isadora Krum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Parlton's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Parlton is ranked 152,538th in the world and 5,933rd in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -21.26 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
