The 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗼𝗿𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘀 of Mazeoftime is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Fresh Pepper with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.442 billion Mazers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Conservative Brandensburg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mazecit economy, worth a remarkable 2,341 trillion Cubes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 247,992 Cubes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,182,985 per year while the poor average 4,112, a ratio of 530 to 1.

Skyscrapers get built in just days, parking's carefree without parking car fees, advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Fresh Pepper's most personal functions, and teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mazeoftime's national animal is the duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Farmingo.

Mazeoftime is ranked 65,149th in the world and 2,988th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 861.4 milliStalins.
