The closest I can think of is the expression "goody two shoes":

An ostentatiously virtuous or well-behaved person:
'she was such a goody two shoes.'
'I don’t drink alcohol. Goody two shoes, that’s me.'

I don't think I've ever seen a single word expression that adequately conveys the same concept.
