Regional Influence: Handshaker
The Supreme Realm of Praetiam is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.098 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."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Healthcare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praetiam City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
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 the all-pervasive police force. Praetiam's national animal is the Praeterbear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Praetik.
