Population6.378 billion



The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.378 billion Praecepsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 1,751 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 274,661 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles'. 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 102,922nd in the world and 5,960th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 38.77 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
