The Archduchy and Electorate of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Slartibartfast with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.5 billion Freemasons enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magrathea. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Freemason economy, worth a remarkable 1,810 trillion Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 190,593 Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Magrathea's playgrounds, the main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story, and engineers preemptively order lawyers after every power cut. 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 336th in the world and 2nd in Pax Britannia for Most Developed, scoring 98.31 on the Human Development Index.
