Pandaland II

Population11.246 billion

Capitalthe Bamboo Forest
LeaderGiant Panda


The Bamboo Eaters of Pandaland II is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Giant Panda with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.246 billion Pandas enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Bamboo Forest. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Panda economy, worth a remarkable 5,569 trillion Bamboos a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 495,216 Bamboos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Giant Panda claims tax rises are the result of 'curses', passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, people are raising their middle finger to non-digital currencies, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime is totally unknown. Pandaland II's national animal is the Giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bambooism.

Pandaland II is ranked 251st in the world and 3rd in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 359,161.84 Standard Monetary Units.
