Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Gold Fiefdom of MasterShake is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by MasterShake with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.135 billion MasterShakeans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carl's Pool. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient MasterShakean economy, worth a remarkable 1,710 trillion 1-2-3-4-5-6s a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 239,669 1-2-3-4-5-6s, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,410,608 per year while the poor average 18,945, a ratio of 74.5 to 1.

The entire country is an urban wasteland as the well-to-do commute from space (MasterShake has found 2 easter eggs), former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, 90% of active duty MAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and the giant 80-storey carving of MasterShake in Mount Rushless can be seen from space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. MasterShake's national animal is the Broodwich, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Scientology.

MasterShake is ranked 63,712th in the world and 3rd in Bloodmoon Empire for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,582.83 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
