The Protectorate of Common5 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Hans-Adam with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, strictly enforced bedtime, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.067 billion Common5ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaduz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Common5ian economy, worth 349 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,997 pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

New Common5ian taxis are fitted with server racks, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, gun owners are skilled at everything except shooting, and the only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Common5's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman-Catholic.

Common5 is ranked 213,499th in the world and 10th in Common Storage for Highest Drug Use, scoring 28.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
