Location: the Rejected Realms



Population7.722 billion


The Commonwealth of Masters86 is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 7.722 billion Masters86ians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Masters86ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,547 trillion Coins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 200,422 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and the children of Masters86 are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime is totally unknown. Masters86's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Masters86 is ranked 3,940th in the world and 91st in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 93.5 on the Human Development Index.
