The Empire of Common Territories is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor JC with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.402 billion Commoners have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empire City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Commoner economy, worth a remarkable 2,851 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 146,949 Imperial Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 687,474 per year while the poor average 18,764, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, Emperor JC's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Commoner as 'your finger, you fool', and food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Common Territories's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Common Territories is ranked 139,191st in the world and 6th in The Empire of Common Territories for Most Authoritarian, with 560.07 milliStalins.
