The Commonwealth of Enrichment is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Barrington the Bold with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 34.049 billion Enrichmentians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Full Cuppa City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Enrichmentian economy, worth an astonishing 11,764 trillion Currants a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 345,527 Currants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Planespotters are emigrating in droves, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, Enrichmentians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Enrichment's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Enrichment is ranked 228,123rd in the world and 8,723rd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -675.16 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
