The Republic of Common Good is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Madam President with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.698 billion Common Goodians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Common Goodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,362 trillion goods a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,450 goods, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's biggest export is stupidity, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. 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 3,871st in the world and 66th in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,914.61 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
