The Armed Republic of Comerciante is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 349 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Comerciante City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The all-consuming Comerciantean economy, worth 36.1 trillion CCDS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 103,446 CCDS, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Comerciante City, and a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Comerciante's national animal is the Honey Badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Comerciante is ranked 202,835th in the world and 49th in Northern Utopia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.01 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
