The Commonwealth of Based Communes is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 509 million Communeesi are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Conollychathair. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Communian economy, worth 15.9 trillion Blackpills a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 31,284 Blackpills, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Conollychathair, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Based Communes's national animal is the Hexagon Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Based Communes is ranked 24,707th in the world and 46th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,905.91 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
