The Kingdom of Maalat is a massive, safe nation, ruled by His Majesty the King Thaddeus VII Kaldi with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The compassionate, devout population of 2.287 billion Maalatians 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tripoli. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maalatian economy, worth 279 trillion thads a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 122,065 thads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The secret ingredient is love (and MSG), airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maalat's national animal is the Maalatian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is End-Time Message Church.

Maalat is ranked 258,972nd in the world and 1,080th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -159.93 on the Hayek Index.
