The Panda of Pencil Sharpeners 2 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Panda Protector with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.8 billion Pencil Sharpeners Twice are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, 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 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Pencil Sharpeners Twice economy, worth an astonishing 10,207 trillion Pencil shavings a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 865,014 Pencil shavings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,078,162 per year while the poor average 175,011, a ratio of 17.6 to 1.

No animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, the secret ingredient is love (and MSG), the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, and personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability. 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 Amerionism.

Pencil Sharpeners 2 is ranked 457th in the world and 6th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 10,207 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
