The Patecian Colony of Anterior Prime is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.436 billion Anterior Primeans 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 Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Anterior Primean economy, worth 24.3 trillion Takkens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 16,913 Takkens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, surveillance cameras are banned, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anterior Prime's national animal is the Golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Anterior Prime is ranked 89,414th in the world and 1st in Arclantic Roleplay Region for Smartest Citizens, with 34.14 quips per hour.
