The Commonwealth of Mainze is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Noble Leader with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.584 billion Mainzeans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. 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 2,729 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 359,963 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,304,054 per year while the poor average 70,838, a ratio of 18.4 to 1.

The optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed, organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, and justice is blinding. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 375th in the world and 12th in Lazarus for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 26,612.7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
