The 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗽𝗶𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘆 of Mazeoftime is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Fresh Pepper with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.132 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 Law & Order and 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 1,698 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 238,187 Cubes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,174,550 per year while the poor average 27,518, a ratio of 42.7 to 1.

Commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, it is said that a Mazecit woman's work is never done, what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other, and a popular phrase is "eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we eat, drink and be merry some more". 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 150,551st in the world and 7,364th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 24.26 Years.
