Pandaland II

Population4.623 billion

Capitalthe Bamboo Forest
LeaderGiant Panda


The Black and White Dynasty of Pandaland II is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Giant Panda with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.623 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Bamboo Forest. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Panda economy, worth a remarkable 1,355 trillion Bamboos a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 293,268 Bamboos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries, and advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pandaland II's national animal is the Giraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bambooism.

Pandaland II is ranked 1,659th in the world and 23rd in the West Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 100 Valid Endorsements.
