The Commonwealth of Masters86 is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 9.823 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 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Masters86ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,049 trillion Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 208,604 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, the government seizes all major gold finds, military spending is on the increase, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime is totally unknown. Masters86's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Masters86 is ranked 23,787th in the world and 550th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,052.59 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
