The Armed Republic of Comerciante is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 373 million Comercianteans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Comerciante City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The all-consuming Comerciantean economy, worth 39.0 trillion CCDS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,590 CCDS, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Weird or unusual crimes merit cruel and unusual punishments, Comerciantean soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, the native owl population is in permanent hibernation, and going on a diet invalidates your passport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Comerciante's national animal is the Honey Badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Comerciante is ranked 228,816th in the world and 68th in Northern Utopia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 17.55 Tourists Per Hour.
