The ∆sthetically Pleasant Nation of Pratse is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Humboldt with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate population of 2.509 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, the Environment, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anaphora. The average income tax rate is 95%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, citizens must pay to enjoy Pratse's pristine beaches, and the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pratse's national animal is the garghole, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Reverence of the Powers That Be, and its currency is the Sol.
