The Sleepy Panda's Way of Spooky Orion Bowshock is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chief Orion the SPOOKY with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, digital currency, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 23.967 billion Sleepy Pandas are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Orion Ecumenopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Sleepy economy, worth a remarkable 5,344 trillion Bamboo Leaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 222,977 Bamboo Leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, there is a dearth of space for new houses, and adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spooky Orion Bowshock's national animal is the Sleepy Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orion Catholic.

Spooky Orion Bowshock is ranked 9,373rd in the world and 198th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 1,551.3570279642 Days.
