The Islamic Kingdom of Maalemzya is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prince Ray I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.95 billion Maalemzyans 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ranakary. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Maalemzyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,938 trillion Rayurs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 243,887 Rayurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, freedom is never freely given — only when the alternative is too expensive, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. Crime is totally unknown. Maalemzya's national animal is the White Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Maalemzya is ranked 39,531st in the world and 458th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,470.31 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
