The Citizens Commonwealth

Population13.221 billion



The Village of The Citizens Commonwealth is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, devout population of 13.221 billion Citizens Commonwealthians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertyville. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Citizens Commonwealthian economy, worth 618 trillion dollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 46,795 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Citizens Commonwealth's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Citizens Commonwealth is ranked 149,900th in the world and 4,795th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -15.23 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
