The Imperial Commonwealth of Provident Nation is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Luis Defensor de la Patria with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.959 billion Providenists 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Royal Providence. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Provident economy, worth a remarkable 3,053 trillion Provident Sterlings 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 255,363 Provident Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, saying "don't do anything that Luis Defensor de la Patria wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Provident Nation's national animal is the brown sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Provident Nation.

Provident Nation is ranked 5,968th in the world and 2nd in Red Wolf Alliance for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 7,921.49 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
