|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 aversion to nipples, otherworldly petting zoo, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.763 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 6.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Great Cactian economy, worth 607 trillion Congressional Cactus Notes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 161,311 Congressional Cactus Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 536,014 per year while the poor average 36,203, a ratio of 14.8 to 1.
Nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.
