The Forgotten State of Pricane is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Auri Akana with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.108 billion Pricaneans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southern Tribes. The average income tax rate is 59.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pricanean economy, worth 86.4 trillion Silvers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,940 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, schoolkids are often mistaken for fast food workers, citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, and frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pricane's national animal is the The Grey Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pricane is ranked 104,837th in the world and 4,776th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 33.23 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
