The Allied States of Preble is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 460 million Prebleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osprey City. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Preblean economy, worth 53.7 trillion Hawks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,705 Hawks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, many aides in Leader's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill, and the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Preblean democracy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Preble's national animal is the Werewolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Preble is ranked 12,039th in the world and 674th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.05 on the Human Development Index.
