The People's Republic of Mahsoobia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Art Vandelay with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.969 billion Mahsoobians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dansili City. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The all-consuming Mahsoobian economy, worth 344 trillion Leons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 116,080 Leons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, posters on 'Mahsoobian Values' advise against being proud of Mahsoobia, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mahsoobia's national animal is the Anteater, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mahsoobia is ranked 174,515th in the world and 9,498th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -17.61 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
