The Emirate of Panterastan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emir Salsalani with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, flagrant waste-dumping, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.917 billion Panteras are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anselmo. The average income tax rate is 61.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Panterastani economy, worth 342 trillion Dimebags a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 178,757 Dimebags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, you can say what you like about the genocidal murderers that rule Panterastan but at least the trains run on time, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Panterastan's national animal is the Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Islam.

Panterastan is ranked 247,927th in the world and 5,372nd in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.06 crimes per hour.
