The Queen's State of Maddin is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 14.919 billion Maddinians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Maddinian economy, worth 246 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 16,553 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed, vegetarianism is compulsory, military spending recently hit a new high, and Maddin has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maddin's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maddin is ranked 125,296th in the world and 8th in Guinea Bissau for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring zero on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
