The People's Republic of Progravistan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 319 million Progravistanis are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Provka. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Progravistanian economy, worth 23.9 trillion ₽ROes 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 74,887 ₽ROes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Progravistan's national animal is the Orang-Utan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Progravistan is ranked 201,707th in the world and 4,678th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 17.8 billion Standard Monetary Units.
