The Commonwealth of Enrichment is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Barrington the Bold with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 33.62 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. 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 11,486 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. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 341,667 Currants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Enrichmentians, Full Cuppa City spends billions upgrading public transport, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, and producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene. 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 23rd in the world and 3rd in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 13,844.94 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
