The Ugly Organ of Panther is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Mournful Caliph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 3.207 billion Panthers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Black Pagoda. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pantherine economy, worth 847 trillion black doubloons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 264,222 black doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cowboys often wear wolfskin jackets to the saloon, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Panther's national animal is the Black Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Pestilent Dormancy.

Panther is ranked 2,142nd in the world and 3rd in South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 172,350.72 Standard Monetary Units.
