The Commonwealth of The Great Cacti is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lewis Brindley with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.212 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic 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 4.0%.
The all-consuming Great Cactian economy, worth 193 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 160,002 Congressional Cactus Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 550,815 per year while the poor average 34,052, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.
An enormous health awareness programme is underway, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity, and major cities are suffering under water rationing. 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.
