The Free Commonwealth of Greater Tern is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prętor Sayuri Tähtinen with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.483 billion Ternans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ittermory. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ternan economy, worth a remarkable 4,048 trillion Golden Quills a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 324,347 Golden Quills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Job opportunities abound in the Hole Recycling industry, balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Tern's national animal is the Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tsukuyomism.

Greater Tern is ranked 156,504th in the world and 4th in Arbcom for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.42 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
