The Panda of Pencil Sharpeners 2 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Panda Protector with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, feral children, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.461 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 11,168 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 896,238 Pencil shavings, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 7,402,263 per year while the poor average 22,294, a ratio of 332 to 1.

Owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and everyone apparently sends Panda Protector hair-filled lockets, offers to die heroically, and poetic desires to co-parent a child. 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 19,860th in the world and 887th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,269.43 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
