The Allied States of Preble is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 2.516 billion Prebleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osprey City. The average income tax rate is 84.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Preblean economy, worth 368 trillion Hawks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 146,349 Hawks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, the true length of the coastline of Preble may never be measured, and movie references are legally admissible in court. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Preble's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Preble is ranked 140,309th in the world and 6,243rd in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 41.51 Insults Per Minute.
