The Commonwealth of Panerialand is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 246 million Panerials love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Panerial economy, worth 5.49 trillion florins 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 Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 22,333 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, and viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Panerialand's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Panerialand is ranked 95,160th in the world and 361st in Conch Kingdom for Healthiest Citizens, with 2.93 bananas ingested per day.
