The Not Deputy House Speaker of Prussian Sail Nation is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory vegetarianism, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 716 million Prussian Sail Nationians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NorthCastle. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Prussian Sail Nationian economy, worth 78.3 trillion Knots a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,332 Knots, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 439,740 per year while the poor average 18,191, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

Major boxing matches are held in government buildings, school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, destitute athletes are forced to train in the street, and stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Prussian Sail Nation's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Prussian Sail Nation is ranked 207,077th in the world and 263rd in Thaecia for Nudest, with 21.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
