The It's Not A Maple Leaf of Masurbia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Wendell with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.177 billion Masonites 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Logan. The average income tax rate is 9.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Masurbian economy, worth 284 trillion Bilans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 130,800 Bilans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams, President Wendell has just been declared ruler of Masurbia in an international press conference, Bitcoin has been named as Masurbia's national religion, and citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Masurbia's national animal is the Chinchilla, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bitcoin.

Masurbia is ranked 18,008th in the world and 939th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 269.89 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
