The Commonwealth of Enrichment is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Barrington the Bold with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 36.061 billion Enrichmentians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Full Cuppa City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Enrichmentian economy, worth an astonishing 12,929 trillion Currants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 358,557 Currants, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Enrichment's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Enrichment is ranked 69,874th in the world and 2,831st in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.98 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
