The Panamanian Union

Population461 million

The Commonwealth of The Panamanian Union is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 461 million Panamanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Columbus. The average income tax rate is 8.8%.

The all-consuming Panamanian economy, worth 47.7 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 103,510 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Airport security is provided by private companies, major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime is almost non-existent. The Panamanian Union's national animal is the Barn Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Panamanian Union is ranked 54,450th in the world and 2,900th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 3.3 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
