The Writing Legislation of Praeceps is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.153 billion Praecepsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. 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 912 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 219,714 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Praeceps, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, Praecepsians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, and the government is giving peace a chance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praeceps's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Praeceps is ranked 170,476th in the world and 9,188th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 1.52 Obesity Rate.
