The Republic of Greater Maharlikans is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed population of 233 million Greater Maharlikansians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 48.1%.

The very strong Greater Maharlikansian economy, worth 17.2 trillion Maharlikan Pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,693 Maharlikan Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending billions of Maharlikan Pesos on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, Greater Maharlikansians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, and artists are pillars of society. 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.

Greater Maharlikans is ranked 116,587th in the world and 5,855th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -1.41 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
