The Kianese Empire of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 12.617 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 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 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,844 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 146,210 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Future leaders of McMasterdonia regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom, and takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears. 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 80,247th in the world and 4,212th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,498.25 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
