OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Most Serene Republic of Philosophical Pandas is a gargantuan, devout nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 16.472 billion Pandaaits enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government is mainly concerned with Social Welfare, although Religion & Spirituality and Education are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 23%. A large private sector is led by the Cheese Exports industry, followed by Book Publishing and Retail.

Voting is voluntary and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Philosophical Pandas's national animal is the bamboo vole, and its currency is the thought.

Philosophical Pandas is ranked 22nd in International Democratic Union and 10,213th in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 80 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
