|Leader||Panoptes the Compassionate|
The Mediocre Republic of Fort Pankyes is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Panoptes the Compassionate with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.578 billion Pankyeots enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Argus. The average income tax rate is 15.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Pankyeot economy, worth 160 trillion Krünes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 101,853 Krünes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, citizens often pray for divine guidance in supermarkets, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Saint Argus. Crime is relatively low. Fort Pankyes's national animal is the Mountain Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Argus Thought.
