The Masters of The Universe is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by He-Man with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.336 billion He-Men enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eternia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient He-Man economy, worth a remarkable 3,362 trillion Purest Golds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 183,397 Purest Golds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,698,543 per year while the poor average 1,896, a ratio of 895 to 1.

Priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, one year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for He-Man's office, and official maps have to be revised on a weekly basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Universe's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is MOTU.

The Universe is ranked 121,120th in the world and 120th in Nederland for Most Influential, scoring 73 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
