The V͔̞̟o͉̟̦͈i̫͖̹̠̰̝̙ͅd͔͚̫̫͝ ͜͠ of Mayo and Other Condiments is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Caesar Asinis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, flagrant waste-dumping, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.446 billion condiments are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurorum. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Condiment economy, worth a remarkable 4,338 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 582,637 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists call Condiment beach towns "the fine coastline", delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers, puppies given out free in marketing promotions are often tossed straight into the trash, and kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mayo and Other Condiments's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Mayo and Other Condiments is ranked 4,868th in the world and 114th in the Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 8,646.64 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
