The Dictatorship of Praetorian Guard Industries is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 381 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, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.0%.

The very strong Praetorian economy, worth 27.3 trillion Praetorian Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 71,600 Praetorian Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 255,761 per year while the poor average 14,401, a ratio of 17.8 to 1.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, and funding for education has been redirected into the military. 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 118,929th in the world and 418th in The United Federations for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 181.94 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
