The Empire of Common Territories is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor JC with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 13.511 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empire City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Commoner economy, worth a remarkable 1,972 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 146,022 Imperial Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 448,115 per year while the poor average 36,808, a ratio of 12.2 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 98,673rd in the world and 7th in The Empire of Common Territories for Most Authoritarian, with 0.16 Stalins.
