Pandaland II

Population6.91 billion

Capitalthe Bamboo Forest
LeaderGiant Panda


The Black and White Dynasty of Pandaland II is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Giant Panda with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.91 billion Pandas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Panda economy, worth a remarkable 3,316 trillion Bamboos a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 480,010 Bamboos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, supervisors in Pandaland II commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, the nation leads the West Pacific for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. 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 207,149th in the world and 5,817th in the West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -892.96 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
