The Empire of Panversia is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 853 million Panversians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropolis. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Panversian economy, worth 105 trillion Notas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 123,997 Notas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Purported secret military bases are dismissed by Leader to be highly-advanced toilet factories, defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Panversia's national animal is the Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Panversia is ranked 29,756th in the world and 415th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.14 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
