The Kianese Empire of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.91 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 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,703 trillion Livres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,066 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, and wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts. 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 29,535th in the world and 1,253rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,726.2 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
