The Supreme Realm of Praetiam is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.362 billion Praetiamians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Environment receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praetiam City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.5%.
The all-consuming Praetiamian economy, worth a remarkable 1,386 trillion Praetiks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 148,128 Praetiks, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.
Government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, daily newspapers are permitted to run only pro-government stories, and the government has hired out-of-work fashion designers to design purses for men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praetiam's national animal is the Praeterbear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
