The Writing Legislation of Praeceps is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, state-planned economy, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.961 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 850 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 214,740 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most ambassadors from Praeceps retire only a few years after being appointed, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. 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 1,612th in the world and 76th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 181.32 Quips Per Hour.
