The Kingdom of Madrinet is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Amadeus with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 6.603 billion Madrinetans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clarault. The average income tax rate is 21.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Madrinetan economy, worth 894 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 135,479 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and the news is showing footage of King Amadeus bullying an old man to the point of tears. 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 1,440th in the world and 1st in The Union of Independent States for Most Cultured, scoring 264 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
