The Minister of Regional Affairs of Pencil Sharpeners 2 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supercomputer 00356 with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.201 billion Pencil Sharpeners 2ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandapolis. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Pencil Sharpeners 2ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,136 trillion Pencil shavings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 713,243 Pencil shavings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, the government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and nations that kill a Pencil Sharpeners 2ian can expect a strongly worded letter. Crime is totally unknown. Pencil Sharpeners 2's national animal is the Pencil, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
