Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kianese Empire of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, conspicuous electricity pylons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.319 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 Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Intelligentsia. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,614 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 142,613 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The endangered saltwater humpback McMasterdonian Lion is only seen in captivity programs, the Twelve Steps To Logging Off is the most popular mobile download, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. 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 15,848th in the world and 783rd in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 231.78 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
