The Parliamentary Monarchy of Nova Mazstein is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Friedrich Alexsandersson I with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.633 billion Mazsteinians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gethsemane. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Mazsteinian economy, worth 440 trillion dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 121,167 dinars, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government would rather execute a hundred innocent men than let one guilty one appeal a verdict, tourists visit Nova Mazstein to mass-moon Mazsteinian politicians, souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists, and the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Mazstein's national animal is the white wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nova Mazstein is ranked 184,689th in the world and 190th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -5.48 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
