The Fourth Republic of Pantoufle is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andrew Bähr with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 7.236 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 97.0%.

The all-consuming Pantouflian economy, worth 858 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 118,678 Marques, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Pantouflian Liberator", Pantouflian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 2,352nd in the world and 7th in Wintreath for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 7,371.64 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
