The Dictatorship of Praetorian Guard Industries is a small, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 29 million Praetorian Guardians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.6%.

The very strong Praetorian economy, worth 1.99 trillion Praetorian Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 68,764 Praetorian Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 243,958 per year while the poor average 13,977, a ratio of 17.5 to 1.

The term "Native Praetorian Guardian" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, prisoners fit in their parole hearings around their spa treatments, soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force. Praetorian Guard Industries's national animal is the Praetorian Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Praetorian Guard Industries is ranked 27,745th in the world and 183rd in The United Federations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 68.14 on the Rand Index.
