The Commonwealth of 1-Inven is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 542 million 1-Invenians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The large, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.6%.

The all-consuming 1-Invenian economy, worth 32.4 trillion ISCS a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 59,761 ISCS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 243,968 per year while the poor average 9,700, a ratio of 25.2 to 1.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 1-Inven's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

1-Inven is ranked 144,210th in the world and 10th in Inven for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -5.22 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
