The Queen's State of Grand Madelaine is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The democratic population of 22.766 billion Grand Madelaineans 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 6.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Grand Madelainean economy, worth 633 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,808 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The capital of Grand Madelaine has burned to the ground and caused riots throughout the country, the Governor has just been declared ruler of Grand Madelaine in an international press conference, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, and Grand Madelaine has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Grand Madelaine's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Grand Madelaine is ranked 153,221st in the world and 1st in Grand Madelaine for Most Pro-Market, scoring 25.33 on the Rand Index.
