The Territorial Collective of Communaccord is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by National Committee with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.513 billion Communs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lower Phoenix. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Communaccordian economy, worth 319 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Retail, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 70,753 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Communaccordian Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Communaccord, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and it's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university. Crime is totally unknown. Communaccord's national animal is the Pelican, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Communaccord is ranked 68,612th in the world and 92nd in New Western Empire for Most Politically Free, scoring 69.62 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
