The Republic of Common Good is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Madam President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.583 billion Common Goodians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 1,893 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 107,710 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 2,984th in the world and 59th in the West Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,852.77 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
