The Republic of Prydaun is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 854 million Prydons are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Prydish economy, worth 83.4 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 97,657 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime is totally unknown. Prydaun's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Prydaun is ranked 4,653rd in the world and 3rd in The Progressive Industrious Union for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 61.06 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
