|Leader||Prime Minister Lewis Brindley|
|Currency||Congressional Cactus Note|
The Commonwealth of The Great Cacti is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lewis Brindley with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.489 billion Great Cactians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Windsor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Great Cactian economy, worth 401 trillion Congressional Cactus Notes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 161,266 Congressional Cactus Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 555,164 per year while the poor average 34,321, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.
Cactuses with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, actors are arrested and interrogated if they play terrorists on TV, and politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Great Cacti's national animal is the Cactus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.
