The Empire of Prostino is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President ArcticJava with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-working population of 5.05 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 Defence, Social Equality, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prostania. The average income tax rate is 92%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Nude art is becoming wildly popular, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, and popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security". Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prostino's national animal is the Plysnuff, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the Armoriar.
