Location: The North Pacific



Population5.81 billion



The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.81 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 Pratorium. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Praecepsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,520 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 261,740 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', Praeceps's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and some Praecepsian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events. Crime 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 177,288th in the world and 8,991st in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.08 Weapons Per Person.
