The Commonwealth of Shattered Cultures is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Count Blink-a-lot with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 7.877 billion enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dothallow. The average income tax rate is 58%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, abortions are routinely performed in Shattered Cultures's hospitals, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, and the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Shattered Cultures's national animal is the pokemon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the casino token.
