The Federal Democratic Republic of Mapperdonia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its national health service, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 880 million Mapperdons enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ortelius. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mapperdonian economy, worth 103 trillion Mapperdon dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,079 Mapperdon dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, and pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty. Crime is totally unknown. Mapperdonia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Mapperdonia is ranked 11,384th in the world and 32nd in The Free Nations Region for Highest Poor Incomes, with 96,996.01 Standard Monetary Units.
