The Incorporated States of Pralgrad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 34.046 billion Pralgradians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.8%.

The all-consuming Pralgradian economy, worth a remarkable 3,505 trillion goldcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 102,971 goldcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 389,197 per year while the poor average 18,954, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, the children of Pralgrad are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pralgrad's national animal is the monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pralgrad is ranked 49,274th in the world and 18th in Equestria for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,679.93 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
