The Republic of Common Good is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Madam President with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.406 billion Common Goodians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Graceland. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The thriving Common Goodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,739 trillion goods a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,046 goods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, and the well-to-do in the West Pacific are never on time for important appointments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Common Good's national animal is the honey bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Common Good is ranked 203,300th in the world and 5,393rd in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -10.1 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
