The Republic of Common Good is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Madam President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 21.496 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Graceland. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The powerhouse Common Goodian economy, worth a remarkable 2,370 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 110,272 goods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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, the well-to-do in the West Pacific are never on time for important appointments, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. 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 269,743rd in the world and 6,056th in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.4 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
