The Clawed Fat Tuna Eating Cat of Mathuvan Union is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm Von Brandenburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.881 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, Education, and Law & Order 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 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brandenburgen economy, worth 873 trillion Kronenmünzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 178,998 Kronenmünzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, and it's all quiet on the western front. 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 17,624th in the world and 282nd in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,864.97 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
