The Most Serene Republic of Perfect Sublime Masters is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ian Chung with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.005 billion Perfect Sublime Mastersians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ecumenopolis. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Perfect Sublime Mastersian economy, worth a remarkable 3,274 trillion ecumenoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 172,279 ecumenoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The red star of communism has been replaced by the gold star of the McRonald's badge, Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, babies are a small but significant export, and Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget. 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 25,010th in the world and 630th in the Rejected Realms for Nudest, with 215.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
