The United States of The Palm Beaches is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 360 million Palm Beachesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 18.5%.

The thriving Palm Beachesian economy, worth 33.1 trillion Shells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 91,952 Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, and soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Palm Beaches's national animal is the Manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Palm Beaches is ranked 148,606th in the world and 142nd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 533.97 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
