The Oppressed Peoples of The Priory Academies is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The All Powerful One with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.837 billion The Priory Academiesians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Priory Academy LSST. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', political activists are routinely executed, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Merit battlesuits. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Priory Academies's national animal is the Student, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is The Priory Way, and its currency is the Merit.

The Priory Academies is ranked 76th in the Rejected Realms and 6,042nd in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 13 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
