The Incorporated States of Panbenzekar is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nimmeron Maelstrom with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.117 billion Panbenzekarians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panbenzekopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Panbenzekarian economy, worth 145 trillion Qubits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 130,486 Qubits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 477,024 per year while the poor average 25,318, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

News headlines suggest that Nimmeron Maelstrom has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Panbenzekarian mussels the biggest in 10000 Islands, and the nation leads 10000 Islands in per capita stalking. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Panbenzekar's national animal is the Beluga Whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Panbenzekar is ranked 7,109th in the world and 107th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 14,523.82 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
