The Queendom of Mastariere is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Beyoncé with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 4.754 billion Mastariereans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mastarierean economy, worth 342 trillion Ducks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 72,071 Ducks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, the Intelligence services are renowned for their godless ways, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mastariere's national animal is the Basilisk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kpop.

Mastariere is ranked 200,206th in the world and 7,778th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -7.73 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
