The Panda Communes of Timchi is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Ferocious Panda with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.233 billion ferocious pandas are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandamonium. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Timchian economy, worth a remarkable 1,081 trillion Panda Pounds 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 105,722 Panda Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime is totally unknown. Timchi's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Timchi is ranked 4,399th in the world and 1st in The Red and Black for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.25 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
