The Queen's State of PR Ranch is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.999 billion PR Ranchians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Law & Order, with Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish PR Ranchian economy, worth 83.2 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 20,810 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, elections have been outlawed, organ donation is compulsory, and a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PR Ranch's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

PR Ranch is ranked 53,897th in the world and 1st in Nashville for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,052.91 Tourists Per Hour.
