Praeson Royal Guard

Population2.679 billion


The Grand Duchy of Praeson Royal Guard is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical, devout population of 2.679 billion Praesonin are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Praeson economy, worth 53.6 trillion Denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 20,000 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praeson Royal Guard's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Praeson Royal Guard is ranked 124,361st in the world and 5th in Parliament of Australia for Most Armed, with 0.32 Weapons Per Person.
