The Corporate Empire of Machstaat is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jane Doe II with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.138 billion Machstaatians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greatropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Machstaatian economy, worth a remarkable 1,302 trillion E-Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 253,549 E-Credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, and protecting the land is holey work. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Machstaat's national animal is the amoeba, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Machstaat is ranked 13,948th in the world and 1st in Polcompball for Highest Economic Output, with 1,302 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
