Panem Sapidum

Population2.616 billion


The Constitutional Monarchy of Panem Sapidum is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.616 billion Panem Sapidumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Panem Sapidumian economy, worth 305 trillion loaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 116,747 loaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Panem Sapidum's national animal is the hen, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Panem Sapidum is ranked 46,291st in the world and 2,121st in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,020.88 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
