The Republic of Preston Isles is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Governor James Garson with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.709 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 45.4%.

The very strong Prestonian economy, worth 514 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 66,718 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 211,874 per year while the poor average 16,006, a ratio of 13.2 to 1.

Vital infrastructure development is on hold because of 'nature and stuff', hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 26,339th in the world and 1st in TransAtlantic for Largest Populations, with 7.71 billion Capita.
