The Community of UniversalCommons is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chief Counselor Mimi Ohyes with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The hard-working population of 9.631 billion UCS enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedom Dome. The average income tax rate is 5.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient UniversalCommonsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,317 trillion BitWatts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,781 BitWatts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Chief Counselor Mimi Ohyes's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to UniversalCommons as a reminder of their "special relationship", and the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. UniversalCommons's national animal is the Blob, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

UniversalCommons is ranked 145,085th in the world and 1st in Micronations Triangle for Safest, scoring 53.03 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
