The Eternal Holy Hegemony of Prusslandia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Hegemon Karcist Carrow with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.28 billion Prusslandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Eternal Spire. The average income tax rate is 92.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Prusslandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,076 trillion creds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 331,954 creds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, Grand Hegemon Karcist Carrow is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea. Crime is totally unknown. Prusslandia's national animal is the Valkyrie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dagoths Truth.

Prusslandia is ranked 4,250th in the world and 185th in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 17,932.01 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
