The Commonwealth of Cairnben is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the Chairman of the Commonwealth Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.803 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nubierth. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cairnbenian economy, worth 511 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 134,529 bretzels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, there's never enough space in space, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. 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 2,291st in the world and 101st in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 11,483.75 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
