The Oppressed Peoples of The Priory Academies is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The All Powerful One with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.174 billion The Priory Academiesians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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.

Conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, most citizens in The Priory Academies are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. 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 21st in the Rejected Realms and 1,116th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 388 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
