The Holy Borderlands of Silver Panda Isles is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Captain Silverbeard with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.694 billion Silver Panda Islanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silver Moon Bay. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Silver Panda Islesian economy, worth 466 trillion Silver Rupees a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,177 Silver Rupees, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 368,080 per year while the poor average 34,177, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

The regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, the book "Zen and the Art of Dog Maintenance" is inexplicably a worldwide success, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Silver Panda Isles, and the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Silver Panda Isles's national animal is the Pirate Panda.

Silver Panda Isles is ranked 168,083rd in the world and 1,151st in 10000 Islands for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
