The Commonwealth of Masters86 is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 9.356 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 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Masters86ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,958 trillion Coins a year, is 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 209,359 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and sleeping on the job is recommended. Crime is totally unknown. Masters86's national animal is the Koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Masters86 is ranked 96,786th in the world and 2,024th in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring 49.22 on the Rand Index.
