The Kingdom of Prydania is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Tobias III Loğbrók with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 10.58 billion Prydanians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bıkonsviği. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Prydanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,318 trillion Krosses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 124,602 Krosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, and King Tobias III Loğbrók's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prydania's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Laurenist Messianism.

Prydania is ranked 206,205th in the world and 9,301st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -119.71 on the Hayek Index.
