The PS2 Puppet of Pallidonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by absolutely nobody with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.303 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.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pallidonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,451 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 334,646 Horses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,407,295 per year while the poor average 14,984, a ratio of 160 to 1.

The nation is so apathetic that Pallidonians can barely find the energy to bring new issues to the government, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, and piracy is the nation's most popular pastime. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anarchy.

Pallidonia is ranked 14,841st in the world and 496th in the South Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 44.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
