Finnish is probalby one of the most palindrome friendly langugages in the world. There is a radio show called "Alivaltiosihteeri" where they publish a couple of new, long and crazy anagram sentences. It has gone on for years.

The Finnish word for soap merchant, "saippuakauppias" (saippua=soap, kauppias=merchant) is allegedly the longest single word palindrome in the world.
