The Republic of Common Good is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Madam President with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.307 billion Common Goodians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Graceland. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The powerhouse Common Goodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,870 trillion goods a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,091 goods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, and the well-to-do in the West Pacific are never on time for important appointments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Common Good's national animal is the honey bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Common Good is ranked 117,433rd in the world and 860th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 315 billion Standard Monetary Units.
