The Free Commonwealth of Greater Tern is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prętor Sayuri Tähtinen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.583 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, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare and Social Policy also on the agenda, 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 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ternan economy, worth a remarkable 3,586 trillion Golden Quills a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 309,599 Golden Quills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", and prudishness is on the way out. 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 115,828th in the world and 2nd in Arbcom for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.18 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
