The Free Land of Privatore is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Capitan Privatore with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.339 billion Privatoreans 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Privatore City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Privatorean economy, worth a remarkable 4,031 trillion Privs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 355,552 Privs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels. Crime is totally unknown. Privatore's national animal is the Weasel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Privatore is ranked 26,784th in the world and 731st in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 194.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
