The Fiefdom of Cairfield is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 579 million Cairfielders are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yanvere. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cairfielden economy, worth 44.1 trillion caips a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,131 caips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cairfield's national animal is the moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cairfield is ranked 147,485th in the world and 5,391st in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
