The Commonwealth of Magellum is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Caretaker Ferdinand Magellan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.404 billion Magellans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trinidad. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Magellan economy, worth 101 trillion pounds 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 72,198 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, protestors are soaking piles of pounds in blood to make a point about government incomes, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Magellum's national animal is the egret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Magellum is ranked 133,324th in the world and 2,924th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 1.40 billion Capita.
