The Empire of Mastruver is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mastruvulus with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, museums and concert halls, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 2.412 billion Mastruverians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyras Cortarius. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Mastruverian economy, worth 230 trillion denarii a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Average income is 95,729 denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, and getting a haircut is a punishable offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mastruver's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is religio romana.

Mastruver is ranked 136,984th in the world and 1st in Tyrrhenian Sea for Most Stationary, with 32.6350832802 Days.
