The Queendom of Maetumbi is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and ban on automobiles. The democratic population of 83 million Maetumbians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Maetumbian economy, worth 3.63 trillion Uhrks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,754 Uhrks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Leader is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and snap elections are called over every minor impasse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Maetumbi's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maetumbi is ranked 52,807th in the world and 2,324th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,850.68 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
