The Commonwealth of Cairnben is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Chairman of the Commonwealth Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.699 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, 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 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cairnbenian economy, worth 660 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 140,494 bretzels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax bretzels each year. 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 2,579th in the world and 137th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 183.9 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
