The Most Serene Republic of Perfect Sublime Masters is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ian Chung with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.552 billion Perfect Sublime Mastersians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ecumenopolis. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Perfect Sublime Mastersian economy, worth a remarkable 3,127 trillion ecumenoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,559 ecumenoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

It is often said that only Ian Chung could bring down Dàguó, the nation leads the Rejected Realms for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption, one can walk from one side of Ecumenopolis to the other without setting foot on Perfect Sublime Mastersian soil, and the legal minefield around ownership of fiction has demolished the publishing industry. Crime is totally unknown. Perfect Sublime Masters's national animal is the Jack Russell terrier, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Perfect Sublime Masters is ranked 199,514th in the world and 4,811th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -9.12 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
