The Experimental Ideas of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 17.122 billion McMasterdonians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Intelligentsia. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,723 trillion Livres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,089 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children seem to be getting better at lying these days, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. McMasterdonia's national animal is the McMasterdonian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

McMasterdonia is ranked 118,406th in the world and 5,174th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 35.49 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
