|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 deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.879 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 5.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Great Cactian economy, worth 466 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 frequent. Average income is an impressive 162,013 Congressional Cactus Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 552,993 per year while the poor average 34,928, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.
Actors are arrested and interrogated if they play terrorists on TV, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion, and the nation gives peace a chance - usually one in a million. 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.
