The PS2 Puppet of Pallidonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its smutty television, flagrant waste-dumping, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.88 billion Pallidonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Law & Order and Environment not funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pallidonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,741 trillion Horses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 314,937 Horses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,265,517 per year while the poor average 14,101, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, road rage is rarer but more terminal now that many people drive fully-operational battle tanks to work, there are fifty shades of yellow in outdoor swimming pools, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pallidonia's national animal is the Dollar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pallidonia is ranked 210,484th in the world and 8,584th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 18.02 Years.
