The Republic of Common Good is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Madam President with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.547 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 Healthcare. 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 2,033 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 109,630 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 46,746th in the world and 829th in the West Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 91.81 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
