CapitalPraesidium Aeternus


The Glorious Plutocracy of Praetoriius is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 579 million Praetoriians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praesidium Aeternus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Praetoriiusian economy, worth 85.8 trillion Aurems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 148,122 Aurems, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 503,013 per year while the poor average 32,179, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, millions of simultaneously backfiring toilets have flooded Praesidium Aeternus with effluent, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, and glassy-eyed Praetoriiusian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Praetoriius's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Praetoriius is ranked 61,380th in the world and 8th in 1st Epitome United for Highest Poor Incomes, with 32,179.09 Standard Monetary Units.
