The Commonwealth of Wealthy Commonpeople is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Andrew McAndypants with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 1.985 billion Wealthy Commonpeopleans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rock Ridge. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wealthy Commonpeoplean economy, worth 230 trillion papers a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,358 papers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, in a baffling press conference Andrew McAndypants proudly dismantled a broken door, surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, and doctors ask for written consent before making eye contact with patients. Crime is totally unknown. Wealthy Commonpeople's national animal is the sea cucumber, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Non-existent.

Wealthy Commonpeople is ranked 148,462nd in the world and 3rd in Cyride for Most Extreme, scoring 12.34 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
