The Kingdom of Proslan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Minister Fabian Ivers with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The devout population of 6.801 billion Proslanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Defense, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Morland Park. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Proslanian economy, worth 272 trillion crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,080 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Much of Proslan's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and the government spends millions of crowns every year prosecuting spammers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Proslan's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant.

Proslan is ranked 87,106th in the world and 3,830th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 65.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
