The Commonwealth of Baku Communes is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Commonwealth Council with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.027 billion Baku Communards are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bakura. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Baku Communesian economy, worth 298 trillion baku baht a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,145 baku baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, sex changes are routinely performed at Baku Communes's hospitals, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime is totally unknown. Baku Communes's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Baku Communes is ranked 44,854th in the world and 6th in Conifer for Highest Economic Output, with 298 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
