The Dark Kingdom of The Land of Madness and Insanity is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Gray with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.349 billion Insane people enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyōki. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.9%.

The very strong Insane economy, worth 265 trillion Drobbles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 79,189 Drobbles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 239,447 per year while the poor average 20,388, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, school children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning, and bars are packed at all hours. Crime is totally unknown. The Land of Madness and Insanity's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Land of Madness and Insanity is ranked 39,123rd in the world and 93rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,571.69 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
