The Constitutional Monarchy of Maztetrua is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, enslaved workforce, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 10.581 billion Maztetruans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 74.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Maztetruan economy, worth a remarkable 2,604 trillion Pesos 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, Woodchip Exports, 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 an amazing 246,113 Pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Surveillance cameras are banned, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, many Maztetruans twitch nervously at the sight of nuns, and children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maztetrua's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Maztetrua is ranked 19,320th in the world and 1,100th in Lazarus for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 5,413.55 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
