The Dominion of Pangaea-Panthalassa is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.069 billion Pangaea-Panthalassans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pangaea-Panthalassan economy, worth 273 trillion Knots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,957 Knots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Proletariat workers identify less with the hammer and sickle and more with the touchscreen and phone charger, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and gossip magazines have pictures of Leader sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pangaea-Panthalassa's national animal is the panē dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Pangaea-Panthalassa is ranked 40,889th in the world and 50th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Influential, scoring 661 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
