Pandaland II

Population8.984 billion

Capitalthe Bamboo Forest
LeaderGiant Panda


The The Bamboo Eaters of Pandaland II is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Giant Panda with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.984 billion Pandas enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal 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 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Panda economy, worth a remarkable 4,389 trillion Bamboos a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 488,622 Bamboos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Pandaland II's mid-life crisis, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, the government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, and the diplomatic corps stinks. 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 1,834th in the world and 28th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 9,852.34 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
