The Dominion of Proper Means is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.26 billion Citizens 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heart of Propriety. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Proper Meansian economy, worth 562 trillion Points a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 172,394 Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, relationships often break down when doctors tell couples they are genetically incompatible, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Proper Means's national animal is the Hobbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Proper Means is ranked 273,693rd in the world and 6,586th in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -19.9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
