The Federal Republic of Panneau is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Führer Rigovera with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.407 billion Panneauans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Eadu. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Panneauan economy, worth 580 trillion Panneauan Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 241,220 Panneauan Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the fate of the world literally rests on Führer Rigovera's fingers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Panneau's national animal is the Pangolin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Rigoverism.

Panneau is ranked 265,447th in the world and 225th in The Western Isles for Smartest Citizens, with 0.7 quips per hour.
