The People's Republic of Communina is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 161 million Communinans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Communinan economy, worth 4.97 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,885 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, a decrease in wailing and gnashing of teeth at astronomical events is reducing demand for dentistry, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Communina's national animal is the grizzly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Communina is ranked 68,594th in the world and 2,988th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,456.54 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
