The Republic of Pantorrum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President William Parker with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 14.56 billion Pantorrans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praxus. The average income tax rate is 7.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pantorrumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,632 trillion Pantorrum Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 180,779 Pantorrum Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Polite commuters on the Praxus Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise President William Parker on Pantorrum's coulrophobia epidemic, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Pantorrum's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is None.

Pantorrum is ranked 204,502nd in the world and 45th in Sunalaya for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 18.03 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
