The PS2 Puppet of Pallidonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, feral children, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.746 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 4,154 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 325,950 Horses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,344,739 per year while the poor average 14,594, a ratio of 160 to 1.

Pallidonia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points, multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, and it is a silent spring in Pallidonia. 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.

Pallidonia is ranked 231,332nd in the world and 8,786th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 1.12 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
