The Allied States of Preble is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 2.124 billion Prebleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osprey City. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Preblean economy, worth 310 trillion Hawks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,286 Hawks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gossip magazines have pictures of Leader sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, and city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones. 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 14,355th in the world and 669th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 146,286.06 Standard Monetary Units.
