The Empire of Madrueji is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Shah Ikram el-Habib with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 2.342 billion Madruejians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khorralkhal. The average income tax rate is 74.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Madruejian economy, worth 537 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 229,668 Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sports club owners are having a moneyball, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, the Super-Spud Cinematic Universe is breaking box office records, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Madrueji's national animal is the Roc, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zoroastrianism.

Madrueji is ranked 8,304th in the world and 297th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 455,479 Standard Monetary Units.
