The Commonwealth of Plymouthia is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 128 million Plymouthians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Spirituality, although Welfare, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Industry aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 9.9%.

The Plymouthian economy, worth 5.43 trillion Kayhts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 42,434 Kayhts, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Holiday-makers leave on the same clandestine boats that illegal immigrants arrive in, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and high school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Plymouthia's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Plymouthia is ranked 118,036th in the world and 6th in The Empire of Narethis for Most Developed, scoring 48.48 on the Human Development Index.
