The Democratic States of Proutosaure is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its lack of airports, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 972 million Proutosaureans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Proutosaurean economy, worth 24.4 trillion Prouts a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 25,109 Prouts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, education is transforming people into first-rate snobs, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Proutosaure's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Proutosaure is ranked 189,563rd in the world and 1,010th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 25,109.77 Standard Monetary Units.
