The United Socialist States of Primirestan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Josh Prims with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 2.595 billion Primires 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Benglor. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Primirere economy, worth 350 trillion Primirsre Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 134,931 Primirsre Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only Josh Prims's friends count in the eyes of the government, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Primirestan's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Freiheittismus.

Primirestan is ranked 151,299th in the world and 139th in New Western Empire for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -2.12 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
