The Allied States of Preble is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory gun ownership, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 316 million Prebleans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osprey City. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Preblean economy, worth 33.8 trillion Hawks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,900 Hawks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, a third of Prebleans are e-certified CEOs, government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately, and bike rage is all the rage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Preble's national animal is the Werewolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Preble is ranked 85,828th in the world and 3,162nd in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 60.2796836432 Days.
