The Hoppy of Praeceps

Regional Influence: Squire

Location: The North Pacific



Population6.852 billion



The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.852 billion Praecepsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praetorium. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Praecepsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,952 trillion ceps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 284,993 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praeceps's national animal is the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Praeceps is ranked 207,289th in the world and 9,156th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 0.96 Obesity Rate.
