The 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗼𝗿𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘀 of Mazeoftime is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Fresh Pepper with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.006 billion Mazers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Conservative Brandensburg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Mazecit economy, worth a remarkable 2,211 trillion Cubes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 245,588 Cubes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,998,765 per year while the poor average 6,597, a ratio of 302 to 1.

Sheep-like political loyalists repeat the mantra "one wheel bad, three wheels good", babies are a small but significant export, career advisors ask sociopathic orphan girls if they have considered becoming professional assassins, and begun the Clone Wars have. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mazeoftime's national animal is the duck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Farmingo.

Mazeoftime is ranked 32,396th in the world and 1,719th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,668.73 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
