The Commonwealth of Enrichment is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Barrington the Bold with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 32.398 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, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important, 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 10,797 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 333,262 Currants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, the military has quashed a recent coup attempt, ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. 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 192,572nd in the world and 8,609th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 46.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
