The Holy Empire of Praefectus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Caesar Leonidas II with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 3.762 billion Praefects are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinus. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Praefectian economy, worth 514 trillion Aureuses a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,773 Aureuses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, doctors will keep brain-dead coma patients ventilated for years in order to avoid accusations of allowing people to die, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and foreign envoys that want to visit Praefectus now have to navigate real minefields in addition to the political ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praefectus's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Praefectus is ranked 23,018th in the world and 1,363rd in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,079.14 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
