The Pearl of the Orient of Greater Maharlikans is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lakandula with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.939 billion Maharlikans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maynila. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maharlikan economy, worth 262 trillion Maharlikan Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 135,442 Maharlikan Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness, the latest superhero movie features a caped Maharlikan eagle with adamantium claws, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Maharlikans's national animal is the Maharlikan eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Freedom of Thought.

Greater Maharlikans is ranked 8,810th in the world and 496th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.46 Years.
