The Commonwealth of The planet nation is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by a random astronomer with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 1.121 billion planetians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moonipolis. The average income tax rate is 81.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient planet nationian economy, worth 94.9 trillion Spacebucks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,671 Spacebucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, lawyers are ordering red ink and 'Cease and Desist' rubber stamps in preparation for the return of copyright law, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The planet nation's national animal is the Toucan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Stargazing.

The planet nation is ranked 14,079th in the world and 446th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,075.54 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
