The New Kingdom of Saint Panther is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Venerable Mouser with a fair hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.476 billion Saint Panthers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seraph Heights. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sainted economy, worth 93.3 trillion pantheras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 26,847 pantheras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Venerable Mouser is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Panther's national animal is the Prodigal Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hermitage Rites.

Saint Panther is ranked 131,115th in the world and 4,007th in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 29.15 quips per hour.
