The United Republic of Maeiland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Jonathan Laauw with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.481 billion Mæilanders enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mæiland City. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mæilandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,532 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,630 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, a degree in President Jonathan Laauw Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and M-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maeiland's national animal is the Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maeiland is ranked 86,032nd in the world and 3,344th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 46.33 on the Rand Index.
