Population7.097 billion



The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.097 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 2,055 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 289,664 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and diplomats are always trying to convince other nations to adopt l33t speak. 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 29,622nd in the world and 803rd in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 207.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
