The Commonwealth of Palenhold is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its smutty television, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 163 million Palenholdians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 54.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Palenholdian economy, worth 10.5 trillion Pals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,194 Pals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palenhold's national animal is the Owlbear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Palenhold is ranked 12,685th in the world and 543rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,964.69 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
