The Fourth Republic of Pantoufle is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Andrew Bähr with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 9.07 billion Pantouflians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orchard Hills. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The all-consuming Pantouflian economy, worth a remarkable 1,061 trillion Marques a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,062 Marques, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, incompetent former soldiers have been re-employed as incompetent cleaners and kitchen staff, health inspectors are seen eating black truffle fondue with their bottled water, and the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pantoufle's national animal is the Eurasian Sparrowhawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pantoufle is ranked 69,969th in the world and 157th in Wintreath for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 60.51 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
