The Grand Republic of Malvad is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Sir Grant Alexander with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.745 billion Malvadians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mavis. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The strong Malvadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,456 trillion Modarns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 92,508 Modarns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Malvad's national animal is the Sea Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Malvadianism.

Malvad is ranked 4,513th in the world and 257th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 18.68 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
