The Disputed Territories of Maazalik is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.539 billion Maazalikians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maazal. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Maazalikian economy, worth a remarkable 3,273 trillion denarii a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 310,606 denarii, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Leader bores party-goers with healthy tips and sugar-free snacks (Maazalik has found 5 easter eggs), there's some really clean windows in Maazalikian houses, dining out often involves ostriches on the plate no matter what you order, and the latest drugs are only legally available to private patients. Crime is totally unknown. Maazalik's national animal is the ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maazalik is ranked 2,579th in the world and 67th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.68 Years.
