Population6.872 billion



The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.872 billion Praecepsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praetorium. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Praecepsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,961 trillion ceps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 285,393 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The world still seems flat to some people in space, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praeceps's national animal is the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Praeceps is ranked 207,028th in the world and 9,119th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.25 Crimes Per Hour.
