The Delegate-elect of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and remarkable for its conspicuous electricity pylons, strictly enforced bedtime, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 15.185 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 medium-sized, corrupt 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 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,243 trillion Livres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,741 Livres, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents. 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 148,442nd in the world and 7,492nd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -14.28 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
