The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.822 billion Praecepsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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

The frighteningly efficient Praecepsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,525 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 262,060 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime 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 177,635th in the world and 8,852nd in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 15.08 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
