The Kingdom of Madrinet is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Amadeus with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 8.649 billion Madrinetans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clarault. The average income tax rate is 10.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Madrinetan economy, worth a remarkable 1,440 trillion florins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 166,498 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Madrinet's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Madrinet is ranked 77,079th in the world and 2,285th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,467.98 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
