The Oderint Dum Metuant of Sad-States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Maximus with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, digital currency, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.999 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, although Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Evanska. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maddoman economy, worth a remarkable 1,204 trillion Frumento in Cibums a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 86,045 Frumento in Cibums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Maximus has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, there's no weight to modern politics, prison officers are bribed not to take bribes, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. 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 Lupus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lux Tenebris.

Sad-States is ranked 10,702nd in the world and 218th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 7,327.41 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
