The Sentai Team of PR Samurai is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jayden with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.284 billion Rangers 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."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Panorama City. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Power ranger economy, worth 562 trillion coins 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Gambling. 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 an impressive 171,258 coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The only film released this month was "Prayervengers: Heresy War", the constantly ringing phones in Jayden's office have driven a few interns mad, sleazy politicians exploit the Parliamentary Code of Conduct to purge their rivals, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders Jayden wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PR Samurai's national animal is the zord, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cards.

PR Samurai is ranked 159,160th in the world and 6th in The House at Pooh Corner for Fattest Citizens, with 9.49 Obesity Rate.
