The Experimental Ideas of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 17.161 billion McMasterdonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Intelligentsia. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,691 trillion Livres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,818 Livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children seem to be getting better at lying these days, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. McMasterdonia's national animal is the McMasterdonian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

McMasterdonia is ranked 9,675th in the world and 328th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,346.2 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
