The Republic of Praestania is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Akberus with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 753 million Praestanis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Purnata. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Praestani economy, worth 86.3 trillion Qushls 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 114,561 Qushls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, and going on a diet invalidates your passport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praestania's national animal is the Praestanian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Praestania is ranked 22,913th in the world and 1,149th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 57.64 quips per hour.
