The Ugly Organ of Panther is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mournful Caliph with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 3.243 billion Panthers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, 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 Pagoda. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Pantherine economy, worth 863 trillion black doubloons 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 common. Average income is an amazing 266,120 black doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Panthers, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, and mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt. 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 Cult of Pestilent Dormancy.

Panther is ranked 1,085th in the world and 2nd in South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 31.94 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
