The Queen's State of Musketiquid is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 9.365 billion Musketiquidians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Musketiquidian economy, worth 41.6 trillion betales 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. 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 4,443 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political activists are routinely executed, Musketiquid has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, the Governor has just been declared ruler of Musketiquid in an international press conference, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Musketiquid's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Musketiquid is ranked 206,260th in the world and 1st in Concord for Most Pro-Market, scoring -100 on the Rand Index.
