The People's Commonwealth of Five Nations is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Piast II with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.137 billion Commonwealthians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polandtown. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Commonwealthian economy, worth 133 trillion aureuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 117,733 aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, and artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Five Nations's national animal is the white eagle with lion's head, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Five Nations is ranked 30,868th in the world and 26th in Velika Slavia for Smartest Citizens, with 45.89 Quips Per Hour.
