|Leader||the Commonwealth Council|
The Commonwealth of Cairnben is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Commonwealth Council with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.399 billion Cairnbenians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nubierth. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Cairnbenian economy, worth 416 trillion bretzels 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 122,534 bretzels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Cairnbenian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cairnben's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
