Leaderthe Chairman of the Commonwealth Council


The Commonwealth of Cairnben is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Chairman of the Commonwealth Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.992 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, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nubierth. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Cairnbenian economy, worth 876 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 146,265 bretzels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gossip magazines have pictures of the Chairman of the Commonwealth Council sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and high school bands practice by moonlight. 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.

Cairnben is ranked 43,414th in the world and 2,171st in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 25.56 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
