The Hoppy of Praeceps is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Praetor with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.751 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 2,709 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 309,607 ceps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Translators are keen to explain feline MPs' claw and ordure policies, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. 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 201st in the world and 11th in The North Pacific for Highest Food Quality, scoring 461.21 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
