The New Tetrarchy of Pratse is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Tetrarchs with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, anti-smoking policies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.918 billion Pratseans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pratterhof. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Pratsean economy, worth 972 trillion Gehrungs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is an impressive 109,013 Gehrungs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, the Great Pratsean Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, and there are six more weeks of winter if a northerner sees his shadow. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pratse's national animal is the garghole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sonderweg.

Pratse is ranked 11,556th in the world and 187th in the Rejected Realms for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 58.2 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
