The Empire of Praestare is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Earth Wanderer with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.914 billion Praestareans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aevitas. The average income tax rate is 66.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Praestarean economy, worth 644 trillion Lyres a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 108,939 Lyres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Skateparks can be found in every city, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praestare's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Praestare is ranked 35,980th in the world and 8th in Testregionia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 159.67 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
