The Experimental Ideas of McMasterdonia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Queen Mother with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 17.405 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 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient McMasterdonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,693 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 154,763 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 12,981st in the world and 697th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 85.38 Atheism Rate.
