The Constitutional Monarchy of Maztetrua is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.411 billion Maztetruans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maztetruan economy, worth 558 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 a large, well-organized, fairly 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 impressive 126,652 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation thirsts for new freedoms, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", the only trips Maztetruans are allowed to take are the ones caused by hallucinogens, and science labs across the country languish in cobwebs as the government turns its attentions to spiritual matters. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Maztetrua is ranked 99,235th in the world and 3,050th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,008.43 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
