The Stonewalled Citadel of Mafsachufetts Bay is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sovereign Celestine with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.988 billion Maſsachuſites are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Maſsachuſettsian economy, worth 71.2 trillion Maſsachuſetts pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 35,828 Maſsachuſetts pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, and it's never "just a game" with Maſsachuſettsian sports fans. 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 19,067th in the world and 27th in Thaecia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,472.16 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
