The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, lack of airports, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.527 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 2,623 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 307,690 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-ceps mansions, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. 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 5,906th in the world and 183rd in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 2,623 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
