The Union of Mauretania is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Theodore Johnson with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.345 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carpathia. The average income tax rate is 53%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, innocent defendants often plea guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mauretania's national animal is the Alpine Oryx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Protestant, and its currency is the Mauretania Rand.

Mauretania is ranked 8th in Region of Liberty and 15,268th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 87 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
