The Eternal Misfortune of Pencil Sharpeners 2 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supercomputer 00356 with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.998 billion Pencil Sharpeners 2ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt 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 99.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Pencil Sharpeners 2ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,948 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 743,734 Pencil shavings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, Pandapolis is a police state during international summits, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Supercomputer 00356's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown. Pencil Sharpeners 2's national animal is the Pencil, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
