The Commonwealth of Powebern is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 366 million Powebernians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Powebernian economy, worth 19.8 trillion tempos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 54,158 tempos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Powebern's national animal is the nautilus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Powebern is ranked 134,853rd in the world and 2nd in The Islands of the Sun for Most Extreme, scoring 15.77 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
