The Kingdom of Madmanman is a small, safe nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 23 million Madmanmanians 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 large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 53.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Madmanmanian economy, worth 1.10 trillion Bads a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,744 Bads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, CEOs are forced to cut coupons during important conference calls to make ends meet, and metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Madmanman's national animal is the Demon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Madmanman is ranked 132,762nd in the world and 281st in Wintreath for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 25 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
