The Empire of Common Territories is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor JC with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.609 billion Commoners 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empire City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Commoner economy, worth a remarkable 2,882 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 146,989 Imperial Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 687,665 per year while the poor average 18,769, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

Emperor JC's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Commoner as 'your finger, you fool', food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, and Empire City has become the number one destination for urban exploration in The Empire of Common Territories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Common Territories's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Common Territories is ranked 165,940th in the world and 5th in The Empire of Common Territories for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.93 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
