Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kianese Empire of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.015 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 63.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,604 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 145,681 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and The Queen Mother's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site. 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 15,322nd in the world and 898th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 153.67 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
