The Sovereign State of Machundia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Gael Maisnel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.948 billion Machundians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erova City. The average income tax rate is 69.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Machundian economy, worth a remarkable 2,789 trillion Gasks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 350,975 Gasks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Group hugs break out during floor votes, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, parents are really careful to pick the right gun for their kids' birthdays, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Machundia's national animal is the asilit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Machundia is ranked 4,599th in the world and 12th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Developed, scoring 94.09 on the Human Development Index.
