The Federation of Primscostan is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 466 million Primscostanians 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 Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Primscostanian economy, worth 30.2 trillion Hoboes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,853 Hoboes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Primscostan Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, Primscostan has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, homophobia is off the menu, and convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Primscostan's national animal is the Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Primscostan is ranked 17,901st in the world and 1,139th in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,505.05 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
