The Armed Republic of Mask-Off-Political-Views is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Director Maskov with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 1.683 billion Masks-Off-Political-Viewsian are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maskoffia. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Mask-Off-Political-Viewsian economy, worth 147 trillion IntEc Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 87,633 IntEc Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Masks-Off-Political-Viewsian are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mask-Off-Political-Views's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Mask-Off-Political-Views is ranked 19,834th in the world and 35th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,356.73 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
