The Principality of Prefesia is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 3.733 billion Prefesians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Prefesian economy, worth 619 trillion Preferences a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 165,833 Preferences, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, aides are afraid to ask if Leader wants a cup of tea or coffee, and students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prefesia's national animal is the Articulated Toad, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Prefesia is ranked 76,792nd in the world and 3,382nd in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 58.87 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
