The Bayan of Mttspiii is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Pinuno with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 15.128 billion Mttspiiiii have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kabisera. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mttspiiiese economy, worth a remarkable 3,758 trillion Pans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 248,469 Pans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

An alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of Kabisera, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, skateparks can be found in every city, and voting is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown. Mttspiii's national animal is the Talangka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mttspiii is ranked 8,791st in the world and 494th in Balder for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,093.26 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
