The Commonwealth of Palgo is a massive, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.704 billion Palgoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palawan. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Palgoan economy, worth 224 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 131,563 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Pocket dialling is a criminal offence, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palgo's national animal is the Naked mole-rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Palgo is ranked 18,326th in the world and 854th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 131,563.55 Standard Monetary Units.
