The Republic of The United Common is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by CENTRAL with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 17.48 billion Commons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The 29 Acres Facility. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Common economy, worth a remarkable 1,953 trillion National Gold Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,741 National Gold Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Common's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The United Common is ranked 12,141st in the world and 345th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,969.03 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
