The Commonwealth of Mainze is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Noble Leader with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.786 billion Mainzeans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mainze City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mainzean economy, worth a remarkable 3,315 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 377,352 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,062,489 per year while the poor average 35,294, a ratio of 58.4 to 1.

"Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, and stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Mainze's national animal is the Aardvark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is an obscure religion that has no name.

Mainze is ranked 324th in the world and 13th in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 37.04 Weapons Per Person.
