Ancient Free and Accepted Masons

The Archduchy and Electorate of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Slartibartfast with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.751 billion Freemasons enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magrathea. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Freemason economy, worth a remarkable 2,283 trillion Master's Wages a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 194,343 Master's Wages, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, write-in candidate 'Slartibartfast Sucks' is perennially popular, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime is totally unknown. Ancient Free and Accepted Masons's national animal is the Vogon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

Ancient Free and Accepted Masons is ranked 211th in the world and 1st in Pax Britannia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.89 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
