The Republic of Pangurstan 36 is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 944 million Pangurstan 36ians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and International Aid are also considered important, while Industry receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 30.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Pangurstan 36ian economy, worth 25.5 trillion deniers 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 27,034 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown. Pangurstan 36's national animal is the porpoise.

Pangurstan 36 is ranked 202,252nd in the world and 7,398th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -8.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
