The Imperial Commonwealth of Provident Nation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Luis Defensor de la Patria with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.945 billion Providenists are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Royal Providence. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Provident economy, worth a remarkable 3,049 trillion Provident Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 255,287 Provident Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Provident Sterling mansions, and from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Provident Nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Provident Nation's national animal is the brown sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Provident Nation.

Provident Nation is ranked 32,536th in the world and 7th in Red Wolf Alliance for Most Extreme, scoring 28.38 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
