The Grand Duchy of Prussios is a small, orderly nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 20 million Prussians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 43.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Prussian economy, worth 778 billion Blood Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,942 Blood Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards, private law firms are unheard of, pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, and every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prussios's national animal is the Shadow Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Prussios is ranked 85,971st in the world and 150th in The Black Hawks for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 43.62 Effective Tax Rate.
