The Commonwealth of Cairnben is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the Commonwealth Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.852 billion Cairnbenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
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 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Cairnbenian economy, worth 307 trillion bretzels a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,959 bretzels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, and veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations.

Cairnben's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
