The Great Socialist Jamahiriya of Masentur is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by General Muhammed Esu Minyar Al-Saryaff with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 19.726 billion Masyrians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esu-Yaram. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Masyrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,197 trillion Dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 111,386 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Masyrian beaches, women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested, brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits, and maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Masentur's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Masentur is ranked 60,032nd in the world and 1,877th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 25.29 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
