The Rogue Nation of Prylin is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Richard Carlin with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.448 billion Prylinians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prylin City. The average income tax rate is 85.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Prylinian economy, worth 404 trillion Jokes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,288 Jokes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Platypus, concussed Platypusball players cannot remember their lineup position, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime is totally unknown. Prylin's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Prylin is ranked 169,387th in the world and 9,093rd in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -11.31 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
