The Compassionate Communities of Princepus is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Benign Despot Rowan McFitzroi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.22 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 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Princepusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,219 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 108,658 pinces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. Crime is relatively low. 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 6,491st in the world and 15th in Wintreath for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 31,125.23 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
