The Panda of Pencil Sharpeners 2 is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Panda Protector with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.698 billion Pencil Sharpeners Twice enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The relatively small, 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 Twice economy, worth an astonishing 11,501 trillion Pencil shavings a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 905,786 Pencil shavings, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,555,751 per year while the poor average 21,330, a ratio of 354 to 1.

People boast about their low income on their dating profiles, new legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending Panda Protector", town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, and Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament. Crime is totally unknown. Pencil Sharpeners 2's national animal is the Pencil, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Amerionism.

Pencil Sharpeners 2 is ranked 1,096th in the world and 33rd in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 33,892.31 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
