The Republic of World Consensus is a large, efficient nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 56 million World Republicans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Spirituality, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The very strong World Republican economy, worth 4.83 trillion Consensus dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 86,177 Consensus dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,880 per year while the poor average 10,051, a ratio of 42.1 to 1.

Male tourists tend to be fearful of World Consensus's deadly femme fatales, major polluting industries have painted a lot of their machines green to give an impression of caring about the environment, both illness and poverty are seen as signs of low moral worth, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. World Consensus's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

World Consensus is ranked 202,525th in the world and 5,324th in the Rejected Realms for Best Weather, with 62 Meters Of Sunlight.
