The PANDA of Pencil Sharpeners 2 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Panda Protector with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.628 billion Pencil Sharpeners 2ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt 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 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Pencil Sharpeners 2ian economy, worth a remarkable 8,508 trillion Pencil shavings a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 800,563 Pencil shavings, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,625,018 per year while the poor average 66,116, a ratio of 70.0 to 1.

An aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, Pencil Sharpeners 2ians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. 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 Pandism.

Pencil Sharpeners 2 is ranked 5,181st in the world and 150th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 107.75 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
