The Dominion of Plaid Town is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Silk Dealer with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.428 billion Denimites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Impenetrable Citidel of Velourna. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Denimite economy, worth a remarkable 2,341 trillion Flannels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 248,328 Flannels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unemployed youngsters trained to kill are being released en masse into society, infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, and the newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Plaid Town" on tails. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plaid Town's national animal is the Bolt, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Machine Washable.

Plaid Town is ranked 16,794th in the world and 771st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,498.43 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
