The Free Land of Ernest Pan is a massive, devout nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.955 billion Ernest Panians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Membership in the state-owned Church of Ernest Pan is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned, adultery has been made a capital offence, anti-environmentalist protesters are gunned down without mercy, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Ernest Pan's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Pan.

Ernest Pan is ranked 2,715th in Osiris and 103,078th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -5 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
