The Swashbuckling Vampires of The Empire of Pretantia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Luthor Harkon with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.91 billion Imperial Pretantians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Earf. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Empire of Pretantian economy, worth a remarkable 1,676 trillion Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,507 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, and fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Empire of Pretantia's national animal is the zombie pirate with heat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Nuccs.

The Empire of Pretantia is ranked 16,759th in the world and 1st in The Pub Region for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,394.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
