The State of Pratara is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ritual sacrifices, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 989 million Pratarans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Méridia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.1%.

The very strong Prataran economy, worth 60.5 trillion Escudoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,152 Escudoes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 234,616 per year while the poor average 10,990, a ratio of 21.3 to 1.

Government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, former pharmaceutical company owners have lost their healthy incomes, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Pratarans. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pratara's national animal is the Prataran Black Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pratara is ranked 105,990th in the world and 4,314th in Lazarus for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 0.01 Bank.
