The Commonwealth of Enrichment is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Barrington the Bold with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 30.039 billion Enrichmentians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The minute, moralistic government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Law & Order and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 a remarkable 9,678 trillion Currants a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 322,211 Currants, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Enrichment as a reminder of their "special relationship", pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Enrichmentian roads, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. 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 19th in the world and 3rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 99.96 Years.
