The Compassionate Communities of Princepus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Benign Despot Rowan McFitzroi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.726 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fedupolis. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Princepusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,140 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 106,334 pinces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive. 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 7,589th in the world and 20th in Wintreath for Most Developed, scoring 89.01 on the Human Development Index.
