The Most Catholic Empire of Maltropia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Brendan Ua Chorcaigh with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 27.472 billion Maltropians 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 relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newmarsh. The average income tax rate is 16.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Maltropian economy, worth a remarkable 2,886 trillion ducats a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,074 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, voting is voluntary, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Maltropian lands, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Maltropia's national animal is the snapping turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Maltropia is ranked 158,212th in the world and 3rd in Paradoxia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 158.8 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
