The Mad Men of Major-Tom is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 3.51 billion Dennis are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The very strong Major-Tomian economy, worth 242 trillion Daymen a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 69,033 Daymen, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 194,865 per year while the poor average 19,576, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, voting is voluntary, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Major-Tom's national animal is the Nightman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Major-Tom is ranked 114,634th in the world and 13th in Arizona for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 513.84 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
