The Armed Republic of Pan Opticon is a huge, safe nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 367 million Pan Opticonians 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 Administration, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 47.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Pan Opticonian economy, worth 20.8 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 56,618 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, it's always rabbit season, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pan Opticon's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
