The Constitutional Monarchy of Maztetrua is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.823 billion Maztetruans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maztetruan economy, worth 437 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,466 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are being told that the greatness of a nation's power is the measure of its surrender, the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and few that venture into government archives are ever seen again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maztetrua's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Maztetrua is ranked 166,786th in the world and 5,138th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 16.07 Atheism Rate.
