The United Republic of Maeiland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Jonathan Laauw with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.297 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, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mæiland City. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mæilandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,493 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 160,617 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, President Jonathan Laauw is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and Formula One cars in Maeiland boast 56 miles per gallon. 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 122,198th in the world and 4,756th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
