The County of Mafsachufetts Bay is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Count John with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.957 billion Maſsachuſites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Maſsachuſettsian economy, worth 290 trillion Maſsachuſetts pounds a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,690 Maſsachuſetts pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mafsachufetts Bay's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mafsachufetts Bay is ranked 225,461st in the world and 1st in Graveyard for Dummies for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 48.6 Whatever.
