The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.464 billion Praecepsians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 2,605 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 307,795 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-ceps mansions, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is. 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 238,893rd in the world and 9,597th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -16.42 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
