The Be Best of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 15.982 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 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,521 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 157,770 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and zombie-like crowds of hard drug users stumble through the streets. 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 121,135th in the world and 6,185th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.18 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
