The Imperial Commonwealth of Provident Nation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Luis Defensor de la Patria with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.31 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, 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 3,220 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 261,639 Provident Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. 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 134th in the world and 1st in Red Wolf Alliance for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 19,958.03 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
