The Commonwealth of Enrichment is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Barrington the Bold with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, anti-smoking policies, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 31.956 billion Enrichmentians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Full Cuppa City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Enrichmentian economy, worth an astonishing 10,478 trillion Currants a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 327,919 Currants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, the Enrichmentian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and a long-distance hike gets students geared up for a long day at school. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Enrichment's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Enrichment is ranked 720th in the world and 25th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 11,969.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
