The Kingdom and Commonwealth of McNernia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Emilion IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 16.8 billion McNernians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cathcride. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The frighteningly efficient McNernian economy, worth a remarkable 3,324 trillion Mcnernian Pound Sterling or Bullions a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 197,863 Mcnernian Pound Sterling or Bullions, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, the "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. McNernia's national animal is the Stag, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is High Apostolic Church.

McNernia is ranked 155,903rd in the world and 52nd in Greater Dienstad for Most Primitive, scoring -440.69 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
