The Theocracy of Mazda-otta is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Mazdamundi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.295 billion Lizardmen 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Environment and Defense also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itza. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Lizardman economy, worth a remarkable 1,900 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 142,955 Gold Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens can freely debate whether Lord Mazdamundi is a great leader or the greatest leader, the treehouse in Carnosaur Park is the tallest building in Mazda-otta, modern Lizardman art is so hot right now, and flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists. Crime is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Mazda-otta's national animal is the Carnosaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Order of the Star Drake.

Mazda-otta is ranked 275,754th in the world and 41st in Monbalaur for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -34.04 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
