The Grotesque Playground of Mackintosh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Magnificent Bastard with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 39.844 billion Mackintoshians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Wasteland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mackintoshian economy, worth an astonishing 30,910 trillion managerial prerogatives a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 775,797 managerial prerogatives, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,770,298 per year while the poor average 55,064, a ratio of 86.6 to 1.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, the "do ya feel lucky, punk?" scene is on the core syllabus at the National Police Academy, and internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mackintosh's national animal is the worker, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Mackintosh is ranked 215,650th in the world and 67th in Wysteria for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -137.19 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
