Pencil Sharpeners 2

The Panda of Pencil Sharpeners 2 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Panda Protector with an iron fist, and notable for its feral children, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.095 billion Pencil Sharpeners Twice are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandapolis. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pencil Sharpeners Twice economy, worth an astonishing 10,604 trillion Pencil shavings a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 876,798 Pencil shavings, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,779,552 per year while the poor average 13,668, a ratio of 569 to 1.

Vehicle strikes into low bridges are on the increase, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the children of Pencil Sharpeners 2 are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour. Crime is totally unknown. Pencil Sharpeners 2's national animal is the Pencil, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Amerionism.

Pencil Sharpeners 2 is ranked 242,022nd in the world and 8,132nd in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3.21 Tourists Per Hour.
