The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The New States of Prackovnia is ranked 136,933rd in the world and 6,368th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.19 Crimes Per Hour.
