The Hᴇᴀʀᴛ 𝔬𝔣 Dᴀʀᴋɴᴇss of Panther is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grimalkin Mouser with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 1.854 billion Panthers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Black Cathedral. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pantherine economy, worth 376 trillion obsidian coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 203,094 obsidian coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Gun-wielding criminals always wear appropriate eye and ear protection, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Panther's national animal is the Black Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dark Cult of the Panther.

Panther is ranked 45,879th in the world and 36th in South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 69.54 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
