The Empire of Themask is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 4.599 billion Themaskians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SomebodyStopMe. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Themaskian economy, worth 517 trillion Yellow masks a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,604 Yellow masks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', it is often said that only Leader could bring down Dàguó, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Themask's national animal is the Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Themask is ranked 11,700th in the world and 658th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 83.25 on the Human Development Index.
