The Socialist Republic of Pangurstan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Sunspot with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.835 billion Pangurs 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunspotgrad. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Pangurstani economy, worth 594 trillion gáts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 155,080 gáts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pangurstan's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pangurstan is ranked 104,084th in the world and 17th in Alnobia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,524.93 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
