The Armed Republic of The New Panem State is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Augustus Gallow with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, flagrant waste-dumping, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.233 billion Panemites 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, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capitol. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Panemian economy, worth 166 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 135,010 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,723 per year while the poor average 33,062, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

A vast monorail network carries people all over the country, visions of giant pink Eagles are a common side effect after Panemites eat their meals, the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, and the populace lives in fear of painful execution for minor offences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Panem State's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Worship of the State.

The New Panem State is ranked 9,731st in the world and 43rd in Nazi Europa for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 25,400.49 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
