The V͔̞̟o͉̟̦͈i̫͖̹̠̰̝̙ͅd͔͚̫̫͝ ͜͠ of Mayo and Other Condiments is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by ASNS with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, flagrant waste-dumping, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.489 billion condiments are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurorum. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Condiment economy, worth a remarkable 9,238 trillion Denarii 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, and Uranium Mining. 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 a breathtaking 804,103 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Aurorum make great practice for foreign snipers, the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mayo and Other Condiments's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Mayo and Other Condiments is ranked 9,896th in the world and 201st in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 8,841.08 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
