The Fallen Nation of Proctethia is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.206 billion Proctethians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Proctethian economy, worth 192 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 87,039 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and the government refuses to transmit electricity to secessionist regions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Proctethia's national animal is the Procteh, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Proctethia is ranked 217,694th in the world and 8,446th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 6.76 Insults Per Minute.
