From sona pona

    A pangram is a sentence (or sometimes multiple) where each glyph in a language occurs at least once. A perfect pangram is when each glyph occurs exactly once; this is not possible in toki pona due to its syllable structure requiring a vowel for almost every consonant (and the language having more consonants than vowels), so this page marks the shortest possible ones instead.

    Some pangrams treat the final nasal (as in pan) as identical to the onset n (as in n). Others consider them separate and are thus more useful as examples for scripts where those are written differently.

    The minimum number of characters is 17, as each consonant except n needs a vowel after it.
