The Republic of Pangurstan 44 is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 920 million Pangurstan 44ians 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, with Education, Healthcare, and International Aid also on the agenda, while Industry receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 33.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Pangurstan 44ian economy, worth 23.7 trillion bitcoins 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 Basket Weaving, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. 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 25,707 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown. Pangurstan 44's national animal is the fox.

Pangurstan 44 is ranked 125,738th in the world and 4,824th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 59.61 on the Hayek Index.
