The New Tetrarchy of Pratse is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the Tetrarchs with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.127 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.

The enormous government 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 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Pratsean economy, worth 874 trillion Gehrungs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 107,655 Gehrungs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Governments opposing Pratse are beset by rebels, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Pratterhof to enjoy their national art, all technology must be personally blessed by religious officials before purchase, and snap elections are called over every minor impasse. 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 175,364th in the world and 5,618th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 0.38 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
