The Free Commonwealth of Greater Tern is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prętor Sayuri Tähtinen with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.195 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ittermory. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ternan economy, worth a remarkable 4,276 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 324,109 Golden Quills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and if they thought anyone would listen the older generation would likely say that nobody listens to them any more. 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 603rd in the world and 1st in Arbcom for Most Pacifist, with 248.05 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
