The Unified State of Pancanawe Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Madreline I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.632 billion Imperial Citizens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Welfare, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madrelium. The average income tax rate is 72.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth 368 trillion Aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,023 Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pancanawe Empire's national animal is the Black Garuda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pancanawe Empire is ranked 69,043rd in the world and 1st in Faxitar for Most Influential, scoring 564 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
