The Protectorate of Mamasa is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 288 million Mamasa have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 26.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Massa economy, worth 24.9 trillion Ma'moes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,481 Ma'moes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

There are no bananas today in Mamasa, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mamasa's national animal is the dual pronged stink beetle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mamasa is ranked 180,040th in the world and 6,840th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 47.09 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
