The Clawed Fat Tuna Eating of Mathuvan Union is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm Von Brandenburg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.84 billion Preußians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cruïlla De Reis. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brandenburgen economy, worth 505 trillion Kronenmünzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,961 Kronenmünzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, heavily subsidised Brandenburgen baskets litter the streets of Europe, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, and religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mathuvan Union's national animal is the Wide Ringed Rare Brandenburg Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Brandenburg.

Mathuvan Union is ranked 10,130th in the world and 187th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 90.19 on the Human Development Index.
