The Commonwealth of Mainze is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Noble Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.366 billion Mainzeans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mainze City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mainzean economy, worth a remarkable 1,676 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 312,383 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,791,295 per year while the poor average 26,247, a ratio of 68.2 to 1.

Oil rigs in winter are heated by contained oil slick fires, preservative-laden Mainzean cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, the Mainze Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Mainze's national animal is the Aardvark, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is an obscure religion that has no name.

Mainze is ranked 1,376th in the world and 67th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 11,028.53 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
