The Kingdom of Madrinet is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Amadeus with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.03 billion Madrinetans 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clarault. The average income tax rate is 17.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Madrinetan economy, worth 786 trillion florins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 130,397 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The red star of communism has been replaced by the gold star of the McRonald's badge, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. Crime is totally unknown. Madrinet's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Madrinet is ranked 38,100th in the world and 285th in Europe for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70.56 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
