The British Territory of Preston Isles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Governor James Garson with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.287 billion Prestonians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamilton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.3%.

The very strong Prestonian economy, worth 486 trillion pounds a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 66,729 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, and the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Preston Isles's national animal is the cahow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Preston Isles is ranked 14,339th in the world and 1st in TransAtlantic for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,178.9 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
