|Leader||Prime Minister Lewis Brindley|
|Currency||Congressional Cactus Note|
The Commonwealth of The Great Cacti is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lewis Brindley with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.414 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 5.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Great Cactian economy, worth 559 trillion Congressional Cactus Notes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 163,950 Congressional Cactus Notes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 544,783 per year while the poor average 36,795, 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 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.
