The Fiefdom of Primanus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Georgustus IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, ban on automobiles, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.298 billion Primanusians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Defense and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Healthcare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.3%.

The all-consuming Primanusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,142 trillion Coins a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Basket Weaving and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,969 Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 390,043 per year while the poor average 22,880, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

Harry Potter books are banned, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, most academic research has ground to a halt, and toddler groups have taken over local libraries. Crime is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Primanus's national animal is the Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

Primanus is ranked 209,003rd in the world and 6,877th in Lazarus for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -12.43 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
