Population7.528 billion



The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.528 billion Praecepsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praetorium. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Praecepsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,253 trillion ceps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 299,334 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praeceps's national animal is the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Praeceps is ranked 69,189th in the world and 3,036th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
