The Princeps senatus

Population192 million


The Republic of The Princeps senatus is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its pith helmet sales. The cynical population of 192 million Princeps senatusians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Princeps senatusian economy, worth 5.66 trillion kronor a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 29,485 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, "To Hell or to Marshland" is a common settler cry directed at native Brasilistanis, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Princeps senatus's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Princeps senatus is ranked 164,155th in the world and 1st in The Nationstates Senate for Most Politically Free, scoring 25.5 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
