The Compassionate Communities of Princepus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Benign Despot Rowan McFitzroi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.193 billion Princepians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Public Transport, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fedupolis. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Princepusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,082 trillion pinces a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,175 pinces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Princepus's national animal is the miniature elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Princepus is ranked 1,730th in the world and 2nd in Wintreath for Most Armed, with 36.2 Weapons Per Person.
