The Community of Proctethia is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, national health service, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate population of 195 million Proctethians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 23.9%.

The Proctethian economy, worth 13.1 trillion Pound Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 67,357 Pound Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial, mountains of VHS tapes of police actions are stacking up in the National Library, and acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Proctethia's national animal is the Proctehs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Proctethia is ranked 110,060th in the world and 4,584th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 22.34 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
