Pan Kath

Population570 million

The Federal Republic of Pan Kath is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 570 million Pan Kathians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.2%.

The strong Pan Kathian economy, worth 45.5 trillion schwams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 79,774 schwams, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

International collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Pan Kath, high school bands practice by moonlight, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pan Kath's national animal is the green woodpecker, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Pan Kath is ranked 229,244th in the world and 1,175th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.19 crimes per hour.
