The Commonwealth of The Impoverished is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.418 billion Impoverishedians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Implicity. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Impoverishedian economy, worth a remarkable 6,104 trillion Impoverishments a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 298,957 Impoverishments, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motorway service stations often have a higher population than the hinterland villages that the roads lead to, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Impoverished's national animal is the Imp, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Impoverished is ranked 2,608th in the world and 58th in the Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 97.56 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
