The Oppressed Peoples of The Priory Academies is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The All Powerful One with an iron fist, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.322 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.

Fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, and birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire. 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 2,590th in the Rejected Realms and 117,524th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -840 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
