The Empire of Praestare is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Earth Wanderer with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.625 billion Praestareans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aevitas. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Praestarean economy, worth a remarkable 1,014 trillion Lyres a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,385 Lyres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, smoking is banned in public areas, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praestare's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Praestare is ranked 241,000th in the world and 27th in Testregionia for Fattest Citizens, with 7.56 Obesity Rate.
