The Community of Maltaron is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Totolecoco with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.078 billion Maltaronians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Teranon. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Maltaronian economy, worth 88.4 trillion marcs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,984 marcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's biggest export is stupidity, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, police reduce their paperwork by refusing to arrest anyone, and crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maltaron's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Maltaron is ranked 19,805th in the world and 633rd in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,380.94 Tourists Per Hour.
