The Federal Empire of Max1and is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Hartfire with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.578 billion Maxlandians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victory City. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Max1andian economy, worth 608 trillion Federal Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 236,010 Federal Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

GP clinics are inundated by patients requesting prescriptions for alcohol, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and the endangered saltwater humpback Lion is only seen in captivity programs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Max1and's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Patriotic Socialism.

Max1and is ranked 162,614th in the world and 608th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Devout, with 2.66 Prayers Per Hour.
