The Most Serene Republic of The Master M is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Commander Kildean with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.854 billion Mians 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 tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paraiso. The average income tax rate is 3.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Master Mian economy, worth a remarkable 3,515 trillion Steryls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 253,758 Steryls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, every workday begins with group therapy, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", and foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Master M's national animal is the Evil Saber-Tooth Sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.

The Master M is ranked 27,949th in the world and 18th in Gholgoth for Most Developed, scoring 68.43 on the Human Development Index.
