The Corporate Conglomerate of Prybourne is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Nagus Andrew Cardigan with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 10.203 billion Prybourneans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Duron. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Prybournean economy, worth a remarkable 2,246 trillion Pentes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 220,169 Pentes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,147,740 per year while the poor average 22,759, a ratio of 50.4 to 1.

Phenotypic plasticity is a struggle for sealife in polluted waters, more and more people are signing up for the government party, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, and mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism. Crime is totally unknown. Prybourne's national animal is the White Java Sparrow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Prybourne is ranked 46,060th in the world and 46th in Anteria for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 69.48 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
