The New Panem1

The Holy Empire of The New Panem1 is a large, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic, devout population of 56 million New Panemese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped New Panem1ian economy, worth 1.96 trillion Panem Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 34,967 Panem Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, immigrants who don't like the taste of New Panem1ian Turnip Chips are immediately deported, and roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Panem1's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The New Panem1 is ranked 13,374th in the world and 453rd in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 77.44 Workforce Participation Rate.
