The Maddoman Province of Sad-States is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Constantine Dvorak II with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.079 billion Maddomans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Evanska. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maddomainian economy, worth 742 trillion Maddous a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 81,829 Maddous, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Constantine Dvorak II is adamant that ponies aren't just for little girls, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, the government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, and citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sad-States's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pacem Madizanism.

Sad-States is ranked 140,678th in the world and 44th in Audax for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -5.31 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
