The Kianese Empire of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 12.298 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 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,781 trillion Livres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,866 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 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 11,720th in the world and 587th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 89,851.01 Standard Monetary Units.
