The The of The when The When of The Global Defence Council is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Senator Armstrong with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.285 billion Commonwealthers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chełm. The average income tax rate is 62.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Commonwealther economy, worth 249 trillion Golden Social Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 109,128 Golden Social Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and drive-by spoilers are an increasingly common crime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Global Defence Council's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Global Defence Council is ranked 132,209th in the world and 25th in Grace of Gaia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 637.25 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
