|Leader||the Chairman of the Commonwealth Council|
The Commonwealth of Cairnben is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Chairman of the Commonwealth Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.901 billion Cairnbenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nubierth. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Cairnbenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,063 trillion bretzels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 154,153 bretzels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Cairnbenian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, Cairnben has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, and women have a strange proclivity for dressing up as caped weasels. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cairnben's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
