The United Republic of Maeiland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Jonathan Laauw with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.039 billion Mæilanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mæimetro. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mæilandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,959 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 177,517 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's said that President Jonathan Laauw can turn every pleasure into a chore, the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, and Mæilandian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about President Jonathan Laauw. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Maeiland's national animal is the Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Maeiland is ranked 206,668th in the world and 8,248th in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -32.5 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
