The Protectorate of Prus-Nayria-Tolkein is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sir Dain Barlow with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 800 million Prus-Nayrian-Tolkeinians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Welfare, although Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rona. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Prus-Nayria-Tolkeinian economy, worth 33.6 trillion PNT Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,940 PNT Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Prus-Nayria-Tolkeinian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", and Sir Dain Barlow has just been declared ruler of Prus-Nayria-Tolkein in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prus-Nayria-Tolkein's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Prus-Nayria-Tolkein is ranked 133,008th in the world and 3,545th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 19.0 billion Standard Monetary Units.
