The Holy Empire of Prosperlands is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 788 million Prosperlandenses are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prosperville. The average income tax rate is 12.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Prosperlandense economy, worth 97.8 trillion Dinar Prosperlandienses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 124,106 Dinar Prosperlandienses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

A recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, and it is a silent spring in Prosperlands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prosperlands's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Prosperlands is ranked 39,712th in the world and 66th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 242,770 Standard Monetary Units.
