The Republic of Common Good is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Madam President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.957 billion Common Goodians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — 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 95.2%.

The powerhouse Common Goodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,950 trillion goods a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,635 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 2,036th in the world and 43rd in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 26,197.33 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
