The United Kingdom of Praenestia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Praenestis Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.718 billion Praenestians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praenestiaopolis. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Praenestian economy, worth a remarkable 4,796 trillion Sesterceses a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 270,740 Sesterceses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praenestia's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ultra Catholicism.

Praenestia is ranked 169,544th in the world and 5,597th in Lazarus for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -28.1 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
