The Commonwealth of The Great Cacti is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lewis Brindley with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, avowedly heterosexual populace, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.609 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, 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 4.3%.
The all-consuming Great Cactian economy, worth 258 trillion Congressional Cactus Notes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 160,493 Congressional Cactus Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 553,456 per year while the poor average 34,068, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.
Casino tax breaks are even bigger than their jackpots, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, anyone who doesn't attend Official Governmental Religious Services is fined, and new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government. 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.
