The Eternal Misfortune of Pencil Sharpeners 2 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Supercomputer 00356 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.809 billion Pencil Sharpeners 2ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized 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 2ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,809 trillion Pencil shavings 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 a breathtaking 743,926 Pencil shavings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Everybody's got wood thanks to Supercomputer 00356, computers have been put in control of the economy to keep computers from controlling the economy, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. Crime is totally unknown. Pencil Sharpeners 2's national animal is the Pencil, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
