The Ugly Organ of Panther is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mournful Caliph with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 3.249 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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Pantherine economy, worth 865 trillion black doubloons a year, is fairly diversified and 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 266,361 black doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments. 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 4,584th in the world and 3rd in South Pacific for Most Devout, with 3,671.38 Prayers Per Hour.
