The Imperial Commonwealth of Provident Nation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Luis Defensor de la Patria with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.326 billion Providenists are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Royal Providence. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Provident economy, worth a remarkable 3,227 trillion Provident Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 261,872 Provident Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Provident watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and vanity is the constant enemy of dignity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Provident Nation's national animal is the brown sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Provident Nation.

Provident Nation is ranked 1,411th in the world and 2nd in Red Wolf Alliance for Most Inclusive, scoring 328.76 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
