"Madam, this bank IS the economy."
―Jideon Praji, to Senator Tash Metonae of Alderaan[src]

Jideon Praji was a male member of House Praji who lived during the final century of the Galactic Republic. Praji was the Chairman of the Bank of the Core, and was appointed as Republic Minister of Finance by Supreme Chancellor Vaila Pecivas sometime before her resignation in 60 BBY. However, he only served as minister for a few days, as his appointment caused a holomedia uproar over the perceived conflict of interest. Following a Senatorial inquiry, he was forced to step down.
