The Democratic Republic of Prevaland is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Athan Bley with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.311 billion Prevalandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prevalent City. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Prevalandian economy, worth 921 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,988 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prevaland's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Prevaland is ranked 193,505th in the world and 9,240th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.85 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
