The Call Me ZweiPreu of Zweites Preussen is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Trisk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.291 billion ZweiPreuans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Das Gehirn. The average income tax rate is 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The ZweiPreuan economy, worth 328 trillion Deutsche Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 52,232 Deutsche Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. Zweites Preussen's national animal is the pileated woodpecker, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Grand Cult of Turtlezogoth.

Zweites Preussen is ranked 187,012th in the world and 34th in Lorania for Most Extreme, scoring 10.37 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
