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 punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.655 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.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, fortified nursing homes are wracked with daily skirmishes, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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 6th in the Rejected Realms and 329th in the world for Safest, scoring 1,887.199 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
