The Confederated Communes of Panthros is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Confederate Delegates with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.275 billion Panthrics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solidarity Falls. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Panthrosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,772 trillion Labor Points a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 191,134 Labor Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming. Crime is totally unknown. Panthros's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Panthros is ranked 3,548th in the world and 123rd in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 621.82 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
