|Leader||the Chairman of the Commonwealth Council|
The Commonwealth of Cairnben is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Chairman of the Commonwealth Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.35 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 95.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Cairnbenian economy, worth 608 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, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 139,897 bretzels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", the entire entry for Cairnben in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. 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.
